    "The school talks about educating the "whole child." That has definitely been my experience! They learn, practice their faith, participate in community service and enjoy tons of extra curricular activities. From our experience, it is not something that you can get at public school or even other private schools. The academics are challenging and the faculty is great. What impresses me the most is the parent involvement. It's one big community where all the families know each other and participate in the education of the children."

    "St. John Bosco is a wonderful school that is truly committed to educating the whole child in a caring environment of academic excellence. The school has reasonable class sizes, utilizes instructional assistants to help facilitate center-based learning for math and language in the younger grades, and employs both a math and literacy coach. When you step onto the campus, you are warmly greeted by students and staff and the facilities are clean and well-maintained. My entire family is active in the school community and there is a wealth of opportunities to serve others through volunteer and other opportunities. The Catholic school environment, with its focus on faith and academics is worth a visit to find out more!"

    "Class sizes are unbelievably high, and no consistency with use of the aides at the school. My child used to have a full time aide but suddenly ths year the administration has done away with having an aide in each lower grade class, instead throwing them around campus to help upper grade teachers - are you kidding me?? This is disappointng and insulting as a parent, the extra help in those large classes is vital with younger children. It's what made me switch from public to private initially. You're better off sending your child to the local public schools. The administration needs to change. There are some great teachers at this school, but NOT worth the tuition as I'm beginning to realize."

    "I have one child who stated at St. John Bosco in kindergarten, graduated and was accepted at every school to which he applied. He is in honors and AP classes at a local Catholic school. His peers from St. John Bosco are in similar classes. The conclusion I draw from this is that the school did, indeed, prepare my son and his peers for high school. The teachers do care....a great deal. They are supportive but they did not coddle him. They forced him to take ownership and responsibility for his education. There were times when they took a hard line to teach my son about discipline, wortk ethic and integrity. I cannot argue with this approach. My child, a product of a St. John Bosco education, is a responsible, kind, contributing member of society. This is due, in part, to his St. John Bosco education. I recognize that St. John Bosco is not perfect. However, I'm quite sure no other school is perfect either. St. John Bosco is a good choice if you want to raise a child who recognizes his/her God-given gifts, uses them to potential, and grows up to share them with the world."
