Pope John Xxiii High School

Tel: (973)729-6125
We opened the 2008/09 school year with our largest enrollment ever, and we have already received many inquiries for the Class of 2013.
We will continue to cultivate our garden, and we invite you to be an integral part of its growth.
Blessed Pope John XXIII once said, "We are not here on earth to guard a museum, but to cultivate a flourishing garden of life." Pope John XXIII High School has flourished over its fifty-two year history, and we salute the dedication and commitment of all those faculty, staff, administration, and parents -- who have labored and sacrificed to tend our garden.
Today more than ever before, there is a need for well-educated, well-rounded persons in the world.
Our students must be well prepared for society and the business world.
As Christians and Catholics, we must account fully for our faith and beliefs and we must never shirk our responsibility to impart the Christian message to the world.
