St. John Fisher School is an amazing community school! We came to this lovely K-8 school two years ago and could not be happier. First, we were impressed by the responsiveness of the staff and the clear focus on academics. While we moved to Palos Verdes for the schools, of which I am an alum, we have been so much happier at SJF. We found that the teachers are truly devoted to their students, and they pay attention to the whole child's development. Teachers go above and beyond responding to parents` concerns. Not only does the school foster intellectual development, but they also have community service requirements as well as service to each other and various athletic programs. And check out those drama productions they are entertaining even if you do not have a child participating! Both of my daughters have been at their happiest at SJF. They both have smaller classes where everyone is a friend. I love coming to volunteer and seeing all of the grades interacting, and all students helping each other out. My oldest has even developed such an affinity for Mass that she goes during the week in the summer. It is a special place.

SJF is a gem of a school that offers a caring and nurturing community. The teachers are genuinely invested in the growth (academic and emotional) of each student. The students are warm and caring - it's a friendly environment for most. The principal has been a driving force at the school for over 20 years. She serves as a strong leader and a respected guide for students and parents alike. Her warmth and care for each student are evident in her accessibility and day-to-day involvement. The small class sizes and challenging academics have been amazing for my children. They both are excited to go to school. In our experience, their peers are warm and families are like-minded in their goal to raise kind individuals. Academic success is celebrated and children are urged to learn and explore. It brings me great joy to see my kids build lifelong bonds and be surrounded by teachers and parents who genuinely adore them.
