SPJII is a great school. I have had one son graduate and one son is currently a sophomore. Both were involved in extracurricular activities. The academics are great. The school is definitely challenging but the teachers work with the kids to get the best results. The size is perfect. The school has a real community feel about it!

I could not be happier with SJP. As an alumni I have good feelings about the school but so far my son's experience has exceeded all of my expectations. He is challenged academically and involved in sports and clubs as a freshman. I love the Lasallian program/education. The teachers are very invested in their students, they want them to excel . They are all very approachable, as is the Guidance Dept.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
