16 Parent Reviews for Pope John Xxiii High School

Very professional?? What a JOKE! Has anyone received the rambling letters from the office? I agree with the posters that refer to how unresponsive the administration is when there is a problem. Suspensions and expulsions for ludicrous, non drug related, non violent offenses. A school that cares about ...  Read more

If you can afford it it's better than the alternative(s). Discipline is emphasized. You can be expelled from Pope John, which is not an option at public schools.

PJ is certainly not the place to send your kids if you want to prepare them for a world where not everyone is white, affluent, Catholic, and conservative. Its good at one thing: preparing students to attend mediocre Catholic colleges with homogenous student bodies and get jobs through their parents (or ...  Read more

Antiquated & extremely unprofessional. Unorganized, HUGE lack of communication. Alumni's who donate $$ pull ALL the strings behind the scenes. They have little interest in helping students who don't fit their "mold". It's a popularity contest. SOME of the teachers are amazing, others are intolerant. ...  Read more

We were very unhappy with this school. Besides the fact that it is filled with snobbish cliques, the school is only focused on money, not the welfare of your children. It is run like a machine. We took our child out of there and could not be happier.

My child transferred from public school to Rev. Brown for 6th grade through 8th, with 8th grade moving to PJ campus. She did not know anyone in 6th grade and very slowly made a few friends. As the years progressed, she has adjusted nicely and has a diverse group of friends. She is now a freshman and ...  Read more

I agree with the last review! I left Pope John because it is awful. It is ALL cliques. I transferred to my public school which is much more friendly.

I graduated from PJ, and like many schools, it has its good and its bad. Good: students, parents, and alumni really support the school, and it's hard to fall through the cracks. It's not as much of an academic pressure-cooker as some schools; while students are competitive, they are not cutthroat. There ...  Read more

Fantastic school. Some things to note about the April 23, 2010 review. All high schools and colleges due acceptance rates as they just stated. 550 SAT scores in each section beats out the averages of all other Catholic schools in northern NJ and the local public schools. Yes athletics are big, but they ...  Read more
