St. John's School

St. John's School was a tuition free school for 100 years.
Father John Pichler founded and built the first parochial school in 1876.
In 1883, he completed a two-and-a-half story school and Miss Mary Cass was the first teacher.
The first school was a sawed chalk-stone school on the site of the first frame church.
That same year, three sisters from the Benedictine Order from Atchison came to teach classes in the new building.
In 1883, the enrollment was up to 100 and continued to increase each year. That is how our school came to be today.
