Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School Reviews

Saint John Paul the Great has a wonderful community that helps cultivate every type of student. They allow challenges for academic students and give help to those struggling with school work. Besides academics, the school has plenty of opportunities to be involved in clubs and sports. Anyone is able to create a club with just 6 friends and a teacher! Furthermore, they incorporate the Catholic religion into every class, which gives a different perspective to just learning information. Overall, attending this school was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.

Although St. John Paul the Great Catholic High School does lack some diversity and offers little Advanced Placement curriculums, it is an excellent environment to encourage students to work because of its college readiness. I've observed that my friends from different schools usually finish their courses before JP does and receive fewer assignments, which is advantageous yet lacking a well formed work ethic that is highly required for college. My highschool does allot an excessive amount of schoolwork that is time consuming but I have learned how it hones our thinking skills. It also provides supportive teachers who care about our spiritual and educational needs. I believe this latter point outshines the cons.
Saint John Paul the Great is a competitive, fun, and helpful school in which you are guaranteed the education of high knowledge students. They insure that every student has the capacity to evaluate real-life situations and give reasonable solutions in every subject being taught. It is a school where sports and relaxation are an important part of the life of a high school student. By getting involved in sports and clubs, you will receive the competitivness and fun of enjoying them. Once a student steps foot in these halls, he will know that he fits in. This school highly respects the dignity of the human person in which every student is invovled in something. Their high level curriculum is set for students to be able to manage time and sharpen on thinking abilities and the mind. With this, Saint John Paul the Great will for sure bring fruits to society as they continue to shape the future with their ways.
