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.

This school raised me up from a scared freshman to a confident senior. The teachers are always looking out for the students. The school is the only school with a four-year bioethics program. Students are able to visit the chapel and are raised in the Catholic faith well. It's a college prep school so the material and work is challenging, but the end result is worth it. I wish high school was longer, this school makes me want to be a high schooler forever!
This school all the resources and opportunities for students and families to have an extremely well-balanced high school experience. There is great community at John Paul! Each student will find his or her place.
