St. John the Baptist School

The Start of Something Great!

Sunday, July 31, 2016

 St. John the Baptist School was founded in 1853 to meet the needs of a growing community with the belief that Gospel values are an important ingredient in a child’s education. The mission statement of St. John the Baptist School, guided by the principles of Christianity and the teachings of Jesus Christ, provides high quality academic education within the context of a faith-based environment, allowing each student the opportunity to reach his/her fullest potential academically, morally, socially and spiritually. We celebrate our Catholic identity and believe it to be a key ingredient in shaping students to become moral, ethical, and social beings, able to make a positive contribution to our ever-changing world. We provide a loving yet disciplined environment, conducive to learning. We recognize the individuality in each student, encourage them to develop their special talents and teach respect for others’ differences and unique views. We recognize that education is the shared responsibility of professional educators, the family and the community at large. We actively seek the participation of each group in the school’s developmental process. As a respected member of our community, we recognize our obligation to operate in a sound and responsible manner.

           

St. John’s School is accepting students in Pre - K 3 & 4, full day Kindergarten through Grade 8. Small class sizes offer our students the advantage of individual attention. In addition to the core academic subjects we offer Physical Education, Computer/Technology, Library, Art, Music and Spanish. Students with special needs receive Remedial Reading and Remedial Math through St. John the Baptist School and Resource Room and Speech Services through the Public School District. St. John’s offers a variety of After School Clubs such as Art, Volunteer Club, Yearbook and School Newspaper. We offer a wide variety of sports for students to participate in. Some of these sports include basketball, volleyball, soccer, softball, as well as a seasonal Swimming Program. St. John’s participates in the Federal Hot Lunch Program and offers a delicious hot lunch to its students each day. An After School Care Program is offered to our students from 2:00  p.m. – 5:30 p.m. each school day with homework time, free time, snack time, arts and crafts, and activity time. Other enrichment activities our students participate in each year include a Exhibition Night, Christmas Program, and a Elementary Spring Concert & the Diocesan Art Show.  We have an outdoor playground, basketball court, baseball field and additional green space.

Welcome to St. John the Baptist

St. John’s School is committed to the education of all our students. The children of today are our future, and we, as parents and educators, need to guide and prepare our children to be the adults of tomorrow. High academic standards, a hallmark of Catholic education, mean that our students are challenged intellectually. We expect our students to work to their personal best and strive for excellence in all they do. We encourage them to become aware of their responsibility as citizens and protectors of our environment. Together we share the responsibility of passing on the rich heritage of our Catholic faith and providing the educational excellence each child deserves.
