    I loved my 4 years at SJP! I wish I could go back. They’re a really strict school, and I actually thought they wouldn’t be because of all the stories you hear outside of school.
    Honestly they don’t tolerate bullying, it’s dealt with ASAP. They definitely don’t tolerate fighting or drugs, just ask any student who was kicked out because of it.
    The teachers are pretty tough, but you know they care about you to succeed. You have the best experience at SJP by being involved. Students are nice, you’ll make friends pretty quick. The secretaries are extremely nice, always there for us, they’re very motherly and make you feel safe.
    Fr. Liju is the chaplain, he’s the best. He is funny, sincere He doesn’t judge you no matter what you tell him. He always says “Keep smiling and have a wonderful day”
    4 years goes by quick. You don’t get the same love in college as we did at St John’s. If I had to do it over again, I’d choose them again!

    The 4 years that I spent here was all worth it for both myself and my parents. The overall staff and teachers are awesome. You can clearly see the teachers are very passionate about their work, helping students to get where they need to be. They take their time to get to know each kid. You become family over time. The school has always been professional and accommodating to the students and their families. I love this school! :)
    I absolutely loved my entire four years at St. John's. It prepared me for college, helped me grow as a leader and an individual, and allowed me to form some of the strongest friendships I've ever had. All my fellow students were kind and supportive, as were teachers and administration, and from what I can tell, everything just keeps improving every single year!
