I went to PJP for four years. Overall it was a great school. I really enjoyed all their opportunities for involvement. However, some of their teachers were not great (personality and job wise).
PJP is a great school with amazing educators and environment. There are lots of clubs and activities to choose from, and sports are a very big part of the school.
Pope John Paul II has great supportive teachers. The building is very spacious and I love all the opportunities us students have to get involved.
Pope John Paul gave me a new family, one with teachers and other fellow students. There were many great opportunities there to help me open up and become more confident. The clubs, sports, activities were all great and the teachers were amazing. Lifelong friends were definitely created.
Pope John Paul II High School is somewhere everyone feels they belong. You could be involved in a sport, the drama department, or any other club, and no matter what, a welcoming community and exciting experiences are waiting for you. I have been apart of the volleyball team, CSC, student council, and manage the boy's lacrosse team. Being involved at PJP was something I knew I wanted to do, and it is so easy to be involved. The academics at PJP lead to endless opportunities. I took a college statistics course as just a junior and am now preparing for college in AP calculus and AP macroeconomics. In addition to our extra circulars and studies, PJP offers many school-wide activities that anyone can participate in. My favorite event to participate in has been our dances; I love getting dressed up with my friends and having a good time. Pope John Paul has been a high school for me and a place to feel welcome while making life-long friends.
Teacher involvement and individual attending is welcome and nice. The one think I'd like to see is more academic clubs/competitions. Currently more emphasis on sports and music. Approx. half of the students are athletes.
Pope John Paul II High School is a great school. For the most part, I have enjoyed my experience there. There have been teachers that have come and gone and even long-term teachers that really make you love the school. It is still somewhat new as it is only 10 years old, so it has a rather modern design and is up to date. Of course with every school, there are bound to be things that students disprove of. I don't love how strict some rules are. Disciplinary action is a key role in Catholic schools but there are a few times where they have been just so unreasonable. I wish my school could be lax every now and then. While PJP could use a vacation from all the rules every now and then I do love the school. Covid-19 has made me miss the thing I used to complain about. You never really know what you are missing out on until it is gone. If I would have known what was going to happen, maybe I would not have complained so much about the school collecting our phones before classes began.
This school was awsome I had the best of times here and will never forget it and the teachers and staff were awsome
Pope John Paul II HIgh School has helped my daughter achieve goals and a catholic education! The teachers are strong and have handled virtual school without a hitch. The music and arts program is superb and she has played sports all 4 years. Pope John Paul II High School has heled get her ready for college. She has secured significant merit aid all because of what PJP has provided for her. She has been fortunate to continue her religious faith and strengthen it while in school. She attended Kairos which also grew her belief in the Catholic faith. They offer many classes and even more Advanced Placement classes. She has been able to take multiple art classes to assist her in adding to her portfolio which she submitted with college applications. The school is safe. The community is awesome and the school puts on great musicals each year. The volleyball team has won state championships and the boys and girls basketball teams Re superb! Check it out!
I loved attending Pope John Paul II throughout my high school years! I would encourage everyone that is able to find a school like this one and take advantage of it! The teachers, administration, and faculty were so kind at all times and really cared about the education of myself and my peers. Overall, I had a great three years so far and I am really looking forward to my senior year!
Although this school is nice and brand new, there are a lot of changes needed. First, most of the teachers are under qualified. Second, the school tolerates racism, which is unacceptable. There are students who are blatantly discriminatory towards people who are not straight, white or cisgender. There is one teacher that is a POC. PJP needs to bring in more diversity to teach students who are majority white about racism, discrimination, and biases.
I absolutely loved attending Pope John Paul II High School. I attended public school my entire academic career up until sophomore year of high-school. I loved the transition of going to a very big school to a close-knit family. All of the teachers and staff knew me by name, and went the extra mile to get to know each student on a personal level.
Absolutely no diversity. Almost all students come from sheltered, white, and wealthy families. There is a surprising amount of openly racist students, teachers, and administration. PJP does not prepare students well for the world.
I loved every minute of my time at the Pope John Paul school! between the people and the staff, the PJP community made me feel like home since the minute I walked in!
I loved the small class size, the school spirit, athletic programs and the religious aspect. Some of the teachers, however, did not have very good teaching styles. Also, if a teacher was out, we just went to study hall for that period.
Excellent environment for kids. Everyone cares about each other.transferred from public school where there was a lot of bullying and bad behavior. PJP makes everyone feel comfortable regardless of who you are. . Safe environment. Teachers really like being there. Wish they had the same resources as public schools where teachers aren’t as happy.
I love this school! I have been going here for four years, and I have met some of my closest friends. I enjoy going to PJP every day, and I have loved my years here. I will be sad to graduate, but I feel that PJP prepared me for my future.
