    "I just completed my first year at SJB. Coming from a public school, I saw a big improvement in both faculty and the students. I became more challenged in my classes, whereas the district I live in makes classes easier, therefore, simple for me. SJB invited the freshmen in, and provided us with all the information we could ask for. The faculty are truly one of a kind. Not only are they great at teaching the students, they are caring and help each individual student's needs, no matter how little it may be. The atmosphere is always friendly and there is never a day that bores me. Overall, the students that attend SJB are well-mannered, and the group of friends I have made are truly one group that I am very close to. A great aspect of St. John's is the arts. Some schools do not fund the arts well, or put any importance in it, but St. John's is quite the contrary. Our musical is top notch, where everyone; students, faculty, and parents are impressed with the show they see. Our music program features great teachers that don't just teach music, but express their love for the arts, and mentor the students to do the same. SJB has truly become a 2nd home to me, as well as my peers."

    "AMAZING SCHOOL... This school is beautiful, immaculately clean with fllors so shiny they look like glass, beautiful bathrooms with real tile not the public school industrial tile... Teachers who truly care and give 200 % to the students.. Discipline, pride and sense of community and faith are instilled in every student. Were considering another CATHOLIC HS in area but this one was the more recommended one and now that my child is their I see why. My child is excelling and absolutely loves the school and loves going to school! Best decision we ever made!"

    "This school has totally gone down hill. Four years ago when my first child attended the school was well run and organized. I would have given the school a 4-5 star rating. Now the school is terrible since the old administration left. Kids are disgruntled and frustrated, teachers are inexperienced and insubordinate to parents. What was once a very pleasant environment has turned stress filled and very unhappy. Plus the school is filthy, and I mean filthy. My daughter fears going to gym because of the mold and slime on the floors. Its disappointing but I can not recommend St. John's anymore. We are switching to St. Anthony's."

    "Seriously, this school is not very good. It is not Chaminade or St. Anthony's and it knows it. It has great kids though just too bad the admin treats them like 1st graders. I went there because I live in North Bab and my parents didnt trust that school but I wish I went there. SJB tries to squeeze every penny out of u too, it never stops. I was on track and it cost $300 to be on the team, and the charge kids for dress down day's. Its a disgrace but thats nothing compared to how bad the teachers are. They test like its harvard but teach like its 3rd grade. I hated it but made a lot of friends."

    "My experience in the school was up and down. The school is disciplined and no cell phones, etc. but i think they treated us like grade school kids instead of teenagers about to become adults. I thought I was getting a decent education until I took the ACT/SAT and realized that this school was way behind in preparing me. I had a b+ average and thought that would get me in a top tier school but the fact that it was from a "prep" school didn't matter. I got accepted to a good school, not great and was shocked how behind I was. I would say go here if your public school is real bad but if its decent, go public, its not worth the money and it probably is not a better education either."
