St. John The Baptist School

Tel: (978)531-0444
In 1893, the Sisters of Notre Dame opened St. John the Baptist School to educate the children of the parish.
Today, St. John's continues to provide a quality Catholic education for students in Pre-Kindergarten through grade eight from our Parish and several other North Shore Communities.
As a parent at St. John's you are in a unique position to really get involved in your child's education.
All families are required to donate fifteen hours of their time each school year.
Families are urged to put some of these required hours into committees that are formed to school events.
Parents are able to fulfill this requirement in a variety of areas.
We welcome you to take an active role, not only in your child's future, but also the future of St. John the Baptist School.
