I am so ready for college! This school prepares everyone for the real world! The teachers care about their students and are willing to stay as late as they can to help us excel. I came from a public school and my transition was very easy because of the friendly and welcoming environment the school has. The food in the dining hall makes your day even better. The chefs work so hard to prepare luxury meals for all the staff, teachers, and students. John Paul II is a place where you can feel safe, grow, and challenge yourself to succeed.

I am so proud of my son and this school! The teachers are professional and devoted to the academic and spiritual development of the students. The students are high achievers and we are very much a family! I knew 1 person when I first started there and made friends quickly. The choices for AP classes are competitive and I do think it has prepared me for college. The classes are pretty small and I really think that helps compared to a public school. I highly recommend this school!
This is my first year attending John Paul II High School, and they call themselves: The Cardinal Family, and I have experienced that since the first day of school. The teachers, administration, and the students are extremely welcoming as well as genuine. John Paul is an accredited College Preparatory School, and the teachers get the most out of each students potential in the classroom. I can personally say that I have never been more happy at a school, also this wonderful institution has an exceptional athletic program. All of our sports teams have made it to state this 2019-2020 year, and have a bright future of transforming young men and women into the best versions of themselves. I would definitely give my overall experience at John Paul II High School a five star rating, and I recommend it for anyone who is in search for a superb private education.
