Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy - Neponset Campus Reviews

I couldn’t disagree with the alum’s review more. My family isn’t Catholic, and we find this school very inviting. My girls are taught respect, love, and faith without having religion forced on them. My kids are learning to be contributing members of their community, respect for others, and skills they can apply throughout life. The teachers are loving and highly skilled. We could not have chosen a better, more appropriate place for our girls to get the best education possible—-both academic and moral. The after school programs are perfect—-well rounded, and appropriate. We absolutely love SJP Neponset!

We just transferred our third grader to SJP2CA from BPS and my husband and I could not be happier. The school is comprised of hardworking, caring staff whose number one priority is the students. SJP2CA is a strong, tight-knit community and they have welcomed us with open arms. Each day begins with a school-wide assembly and families are invited to stay. It’s a wonderful way to start the school day. Our son’s teacher is fantastic and parent communication is excellent. We get a newsletter each week with updates and information on what the class is working on. Grades and homework are all posted online so we’re never in the dark about our child’s progress. We were hesitant to uproot our son after the school year had started, but we are so happy we did. We can’t wait for his younger siblings to join him!
My son and I absolutely love SJPIICA Neponset. He started there at K2 after leaving BPS because he was ahead and not being challenged at all. SJP met him where he was and continued to provide a gentle push. The staff are very nurturing but also set reasonable limits and have predictable structure and high expectations which is exactly what my son needs. My son transferred to a pilot BPS and experienced significant regression. Back at SJPIICA Neponset he is back to performing on the level we know he can. My son has some educational needs and was on an IEP at BPS. SJPCAII Neponset is working with him to meet his needs and ensure that he continues to thrive! I am Baptist rather than Catholic, but the principles remain the same. There is no other place my son or I would rather be!
