My son is in Kindergarten at St. John Vianney Catholic School this year. We LOVE it there. The teachers are very attentive and engaging, and there is a great atmosphere for the students and their families. This was our first year, which began in August 2020, when COVID restrictions had to be implemented for the first time, and the school really rose to the challenge. They kept the different classes separated from each other to prevent a cross contamination between the different grades and that, along with the fact that it has outdoor hallways, made it safer than other schools. When the kindergartners had to learn virtually, their teacher did not miss a beat - it was a smooth transition, and she taught those kindergartners how to mute and un-mute themselves ten times faster than the adults I have had video conferences with for work! The academics are outstanding. The after-school program, kids' club, is run by an energetic and friendly staff who love what they do and give the kids a great experience. They do their homework in the after-school program, too. When there is no pandemic, the school has a large variety of sports for the kids to choose from, and it is located just down the road from the St. Pete Beach Recreation Center, which also has programs. The tuition is lower than other private schools, and it is near the beach which is a much prettier, nicer drive than driving some place in the middle of a city every day. I highly recommend it!

We could not any happier with the experience at St. John Vianney Catholic School. The small class size and personal attention have been so key to our daughter's academic success. The teachers and staff sincerely care about each of their students. It is a close school community where you are truly part of the family. We are so thankful to have made the St. John's choice.
