    "I was looking for an authentically catholic school for my kids. A school where the catholic faith is taught and lived. Kids can learn very well at a public school but I believe, if you are a person of faith, that secular education is incomplete since it ignores the spiritual life in a child's life. I am so grateful to SJB for assisting us as parents to raise our children in the faith."

    "Our small school is strong and vibrant. "The mission of St. John the Baptist Catholic School community is to provide academic excellence in the Catholic learning tradition. Our vision is to strengthen faith, build character, encourage success, and foster the uniqueness of each individual student. " This is a perfect summary of what we believe and continue to offer students and parents in our community. Our family has had students at St.John's for the past 12 years, and can't imagine having a more positive experience. I am the current chair of our parent organization, and we have an amazing group of parents who volunteer wherever needed. For the past several years our older students have had the opportunity to participate in wonderful theater productions. Some of the alumni have gone on to act in high school productions thanks to their experiences at St. John's. We encourage everyone to consider our school. You won't be disappointed!"

    "This school is fantastic! Our whole family has thrived as a result of this school. The staff is tremendous!!!! Each person is treated with dignity and respect. They go out of their way to make sure each child learns in the way that best works for their style. The culture allows children to be themselves so as to be able to better learn. I truly don't understand the negative reviews. There could not be a better group of people and educators."

    "My children attend St. John's and I couldn't be happier. They are thriving. The environment is small, caring, and nurturing. They participate in sports, take piano lessons, do woodworking, and because of class size, are able to move according to their ability regardless of grade. Check the honor rolls of Holy Famliy and Minnetonka High, SJB grads are routinely on it. I couldn't imagine having my kids anywhere else. Come and check us out! You won't regret it."

    "Unfortunately, the school is really struggling and unable to keep their teachers due to declining enrollments, so they combine some grades into one classroom. Several of the "staff" they picture on their website are not paid, degreed professionals, but volunteers who are helping out, and officially part of Mtka system, but required by law to spend a couple hours a week at this school. Check out other options, the services here are really lacking, and what is available is not as portrayed. For example, the language program - Is it possible to learn a foreign language in a little over an hour a week for a Middle School student? The students are at a disadvantage when they go to other schools. There haven't been art classes, and attend the "concert" to see and hear for yourself what they call a "band" and "choir". A few parents are campaigning to save this school, but look at numbers over the past 10 years, and then talk to people who sent their kids elsewhere and ask them why."
