We have been at SJRCS for six years, since my oldest was in PK3. We have found both the teachers and administration to be very responsive. My children are both receiving a quality education and learning to be ethical and conscientious individuals. I find that homework thus far has been reasonable to reinforce classroom topics. When the pandemic struck, the school seamlessly pivoted to an online learning platform. While the public schools in our county took two weeks off from instruction, we continued with new material the following Monday. The teachers really made an effort to be sure that our kids will still learn and moving forward despite the unprecedented circumstances.

We have been attending St John for 4 years and always been very pleased with the education our children are receiving. This is just not a school, but a community. The friendships that my kids have made and the education they have received will be something treasured for a lifetime.

SJRCS is a strong and caring community dedicated to educating and preparing children for success. My three kids have grown immensely academically and personally during their time at SJRCS. The teaching staff is easy to talk to and will make themselves available to discuss any concerns about your student. The large offerings of extra curricular activities and social events are great too.

We have had a wonderful experience at SJRCS for the past 11 years. There is a strong sense of community and our daughters were academically challenged and well prepared for high school. In addition, they Have all participated in Chorus and made long lasting friendships with their peers. The teachers and staff are all very dedicated and engaged in supporting the students in order for them to be their best.

Our two daughters loves go to St. John, they have many reasons why they do. First, they have the best teachers and the staff are very helpful, friendly. My oldest daughter love music and computers. My little one loves art, music, and PE. I will recommend this school to everyone how ask we're my daughters go, because we really have an amazing experience we know the high level of education that our daughters are having there. This year due to COVID, the school and teacher work very hard to keep teaching the student from the distance and we really happy because our daughters don't stop learning, they use the best technology and App to help and teach the students. For our family, St John Regional Catholic School is the best in education.

This school was the best decision our family ever made.. Our children made such great friends and enjoyed all the extra-curricular activities the school has to offer. Whether it's basketball, chess club or science explorers club, there really is something for every child here at SJRCS.

Our 2 boys have been attending SJRCS for 8 years (started in the pre-K program) and they couldn't be happier! We are so impressed with the quality of their educational experience and feel that they are getting a well-rounded education not only in academics but in community service, respecting others and working together with their teachers and peers. We would highly recommend SJRCS!

Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
