    St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School Reviews

    2 reviews
    We searched far and wide for a school that encompasses our love for Montessori learning with the foundation of our Catholic Faith and found the hidden gem of St. John the Baptist Catholic Montessori School! Our children are thriving in their new environment that focuses on guiding them to reach the full potential of their whole person in body, mind and spirit. The staff is exceptional in their role as guide, and has been quick to answer any questions or concerns. I appreciate the weekly updates about what happens in the classrooms and love the opportunities my children have to grow in their Faith through Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, daily prayer, weekly Mass, adoration, etc. Child led learning in Montessori education in a Catholic environment has been such a gift to our family.
