Pope John is hands down the best school in Sussex County. No other school prepares your child for college as well, from classes to college prep to college selection and scholarship applications. The sports programs are incredibly strong, Mrs. Burt's drama department is untouchable, Mrs. Elvina develops award-winning artists, the robotics program excels, the teaching talent soars, their philanthropy opportunities for students abound...it's excellence across the board. My son graduated last year, my oldest daughter is a sophomore and my youngest enters from Pope John Middle School next year.

Pope John XXIII High School is a great school with tough curriculum, especially for honors and AP students. This school prepares students for the college course load,while lacking basically necessities like air conditioning and locks on all the classroom doors. The rules and accepted behavior at this school is incredibly strict, sometimes it seems as though the principle doesn’t have a sense of humor at times. The only sports that excell at this school are the track and field team and the drama club, otherwise known as the Pope John Players. The last problem many attending students have with this school is the no water bottle and no sweatshirt policy. To carry around a sweatshirt or a water bottle p, a student must have a signed note from their doctor saying they have to have one. Wouldn’t students be more comfortable with a sweatshirt on in the winter and a handy water bottle for hydration?
Pope John XXIII Regional High School is a bitter-sweet mixture. Will they get your child into college with a decent scholarship? Yes, most likely. You want an athletic scholarship? If you're willing to put in the work, they'll get you there. However, PJHS will pretty much strip you of all your personal liberties (including not letting your children go to the bathroom all day because some graffiti shows up in a bathroom, stripping student privileges for just about anything including things students do outside of school if the school finds out, and suspending a student for smiling). They also show blatant favoritism of football players and basketball players.
