St John The Baptist Catholic School Ratings & Reviews

We pulled our kids out of this school last year. My son was behind in reading and math. Luckily he is now thriving in public school after having to catch up. The K4 and K5 teachers were great. However, there seemed to be a lack of communication from the first grade teacher. The teachers seemed to be more inviting than the other parents. Parents tend to be snobbish and clique-ish, which unfortunately rolls down in to their kids and how they behave as well. Public school has been a much better fit for my children.

"Our family is so glad the school year is just about over! There is absolutely no reason for the teachers to be so harsh and uncaring towards the children. The upper elementary teachers very rarely smile, seem incredibly grumpy, and speak to the students with negativity and contempt, and their tone on voice always sounds like they are blaming something on the students. This is not how teachers should speak to students. Teachers should speak to students warmly, kindly, encouragingly, and positively, but you won't find that here in the upper elementary grade-level teachers. All of the teachers who teach ""Specials,"" such as Art, Music, Library, are very kind, though. This school does not provide any type of Math foundation at all. In our experiences here, the teachers have actually not ""taught"" Math -- they simply tell the students to turn to a page in their Math textbooks and figure out how to do the next lesson! You can't teach Math like that!!! And why do they not allow the upper elementary kids to have recess? These kids are sitting inside for 7 hours a day in the hot classroom -- there is a beautiful field that NEVER gets used! I will tell you why there is no recess -- we found that it is because the teachers simply do not want to go outside. This has to be the only reason -- the kids are in school for 7 hours a day and there is plenty of time for 30 minutes of fresh air! This school does not value the kids like it pretends to do."

PUNITIVE Grading System!!! If you want your child to receive grades that do not match their abilities, that do not correlate with their TRUE performance on assignments, then this is the school for you!! If you want your child to work long and hard to complete assignment perfectly, or near perfectly, only to be marked down extremely punitively for the smallest mistakes, then this is the school for you. We have found the grading standards to be completely inconsistent. Rubrics given by the teachers have been poorly designed, poorly defined, very subjective. We have found that teachers at this school like to hand out rubrics but then diminish the child's true and actual mastery of the skills by marking off for standards not written in the rubric. HOW CAN A CHILD KNOW WHAT YOU WILL GRADE THEM OFF IF IT IS NOT COMMUNICATED TO THEM IN WRITING???!!! Are the kids supposed to be mind readers? This type of grading reeks of subjectivity and bias. This type of grading does not belong in 21st Century Education.

I am an eighth grader at this school, and I can tell you right now that my classmates are wrong. They all say the teachers are terrible. They say that because the teachers are trying to get them to LEARN. What a horrible objective. To me, this school is the best school ever. They only give us homework when it actually reinforces the learning rather than repeating it, and the curriculum is set over many areas of knowledge. The middle school math and science teachers especially are phenomenal. What my classmates say is not relevant. They just can't wait for high school, and they take out their frustration on their current school's reputation. Sending your children here is a guarantee for success in their future.

This school is one of the worst. I am not pleased with the curriculum whatsoever. I have been wuth them for eight and a half years now, the decline of the standard has gone down immensely. 1/10 would not school again.
