My son transferred to St. John Vianney from public school and it was the best decision we`ve made! It`s like family at the school between adults to us parents and children and same between the students. I`m excited he still has 2 more years there for middle school.

They have taken into consideration with everything that is going on in this world , they have made it there number 1 priority to keeping my son and students safe, so what does that say about this school. Education and safety and having God in there life is there priority. Blessed to have this school in my son life.

My boys came to this school when we moved to the area. We`ve been to bigger Catholic schools in the past but this is our favorite Catholic school so far. Even though they are smaller in the number of students they offer things like violin, Latin and a financial course for our 5th grader that we`ve not seen at Catholic schools in the past. Also, the attention they get from the wonderful teachers is a plus since the class sizes are smaller. You get so much value out of your child`s education here. What we love the most though is the family like atmosphere here. Just a wonderful group to be a part of!!

Excellent school. The kids are always so happy, academics superb and you feel like part of a caring family from day 1. All of the teachers know all of the kids and the older kids are protective of the younger ones with a great respect for their innocence.

This is my second year working at Saint John Vianney and I could not be happier to be here. When you step in to SJV, you become part of a family. My small class of students works together to encourage each other and the classes around them. Parents are always willing and excited to help teachers with whatever they need. Students are excited to learn new things and just be at school. Our STEM program encourages students to think outside the box and to get creative in science, technology, engineering, and math. Our violin program, led by a champion fiddler gets students excited about not only learning but excelling at playing an instrument. Art, P.E., and Spanish also allow students to grow in various subject areas. Our Catholic curriculum allows students to explore their religion throughout each and every day.
