The first thing to know about St. John the Baptist is that it's full of kids.
SJB is an elementary school with boys and girls in preschool through 8th grade. We have one class per grade, about 230 students in all. We are part of a Catholic school, and we are committed to living as Jesus taught us. To us, this means welcoming non-Catholic students and their families to our community. It means extending our inclusive attitude and compassion to the classroom, lunch table, and playground. At SJB, we believe that all of our students and families should feel that they belong. We are proud of our high academic standards and achievements, including our Blue Ribbon distinction. Most of our 8th graders go to the Catholic high schools of their choice, and our 28 graduates won $210,000 in academic scholarships last year. We are proud of our top-notch writing and Spanish programs, the variety of enriching after-school activities that we offer, the integration of technology that prepares us for the future, and the traditions that link us to the past. We are most proud of the small, important gains we make with children every day and the trusting partnerships we have formed with each other.
