    "What a welcoming environment. Everyone is caring, from staff to families. My children love the school as well as the teachers. They never complain about having to go to school, to them it's like a second home. Great education with morals and values taught daily. Great choice for my family."

    "Our family was searching for a school where students are treated as valued and loved individuals, where teachers cared whether or not a student completed and turned in assignments and whether or not they understood the material, where teachers are enthusiastic and still love teaching, and where students can catch their enthusiasm and love learning, where teachers and staff would support our values and moral teachings and care how students treat others, where the Gospel and grace are taught through example and lessons, where academics are taught to a high standard and where success was already proven, and where learning is interactive and maybe even fun- where activities and projects support lessons and students are encouraged to think, grow, and lead. We found this school in Lecanto at Pope John Paul II Catholic School. They treat each student as a whole person with academic, spiritual, and physical needs. It has a strong community which includes polite and caring students, parents and staff. Pope John Paul II Catholic School exceeded all of our hopes and expectations. A rare school today indeed! We are blessed to be a part of this community. Thank you!!"

    "My son started attending PJP2 in 3rd grade in 2012. The school offered a special program at his grade level in BrainWare Safari which he absolutely loved! I've read the reviews and was a bit skeptical when I saw the review that said, "Please Just Pay Double." The school does a lot of fundraising of all types which is not unlike any other school these days. I didn't feel strong armed or pressured into paying for anything outside our reach. I think the teachers at PJP2 are outstanding: compassionate, caring, and involved with the students. My son had special issues due to sensory integration, and everyone at PJP2 just wrapped around him and our family and showed their support. I truly believe that the teachers at this school have contributed to my son's success. He loves this school and doesn't want to go anywhere else. PJP2 is a blessing. If you want a place for your child that feels more like a "home" than a "classroom" you should look at enrolling your child(ren) at PJP2. Scholarships are available outside the normal Step Up for Students. Take a chance. It could change your life and that of your children!"

    "Parents refer to Pope John Paul II simply as PJP II...lately that acronym seems to stand for PLEASE JUST PAY DOUBLE!!! Paying tuition, consumable fees, volunteering hours isn t even enough. EVERYTHING is turned into a money making venture want to vote for the theme of the annual fundraiser? Vote by bringing in MONEY and putting it in a jar. Want to attend a brunch to honor your children s grandparents? Buy their tickets! As parents we are constantly bombarded with raffle tickets and fundraisers to sell, sell, sell!!! It NEVER stops!! As for the rest of the school? The curriculum is good. The teachers for the most part seem to really care about the students. The administration is the weakest link in the school. The principal is completely concerned with promoting the school-and the children. She is more troubled about the outward facade of how the school appears to the public than on the inner workings of making a peaceful environment for all who attend. My children attended a much larger private school out of state and although it had its fair share of problems it was nothing compared to this. Faculty seems to be cautious almost timid dealing with the principal."

    "I do love this school for my children; the teachers are kind and compassionate and always keep parents informed. The environment is friendly and morally sound. However, be prepared to get your wallet out! I completely understand that private schools struggle daily to make ends meet. For those of us that are average middle class families paying for tuition, and do not receive (or qualify) for any scholarship assistance it is very discouraging to constantly be forced to sell raffle tickets, or be bombarded with fund raisers. There is no doubt that the principal is very concerned about getting new technology for the students, but it is very evident that marketing the school is her first priority. As parents we are constantly told of the thousands of dollars the school saves by cutting the air conditioner off over weekends, and how much our end of the school year auction brings in, but have yet to see those savings reflected in our tuition costs. The pressure makes enjoying your children s schooling experience nearly impossible."
