Jesus Christ is the foundation of our Catholic grade school, therefore, St. John the Evangelist School, in partnership with family and parish is committed to enhancing the dignity of each individual; developing moral values; nurturing emotional and social skills; and fostering academic excellence for every child within a faith-filled environment.
St. John the Evangelist School believes that childhood is the most critical period for the development of attitudes, habits, capabilities, and skills, and that the curriculum encompasses all that a child experiences in his life at school. The pastor, principal, staff, teachers, parents, and other community members lay the foundation for a love of learning, a desire to grow in charity, and the critical thinking skills needed to be a truly educated person.
