I have been an educator for more than 32 years both in public and private schools. I currently teach at John S. Catholic H.S. which draws students from more than 12 school districts. I can always tell which students have graduated from St. John's Elementary School in Goshen. They are the ones who have

In addition, they bring an understanding of the requirement for respect for their parents, teachers, peers and community. The parents of these students are also committed in helping their children reach their potential and are wonderful to work with when their children reach the high school level - I find very few of them who seek to blame someone else for their children's inability to apply themselves or their child's lack of respect in the classroom.

As a parent of a child in St. John's i was disappointed with the 5th and 6th grade teachers. There is alot of screaming from them as they do not know how to handle a class. They are both Mom and daughter and for this reason I will not be sending my other children to this school. I had to hire a tutor

This is our third year at St. John school and it was the best decision my family has made after one year of public school and the struggles with disrespect, and over exposure among other things. St. John School has provided a nurturing environment and is academically excellent. The test results prove

The after school activities are well beyond what I thought could be offered from choir, to brownies and girl scouts to basketball to cheerleading to band to library helpers. The parental involvement and sense of community is another area in which St. John school exceeds. The amount of community service is also a highlight for my family. You really do feel a part of your child's education and a part of the school. Kindergarten starting fall of 2010!! Read less

Stumbled upon this wonderful school after moving to Goshen 5 years ago. Teachers are outstanding from grades 1-8. Note that our teachers did not go out on strike and most continued after school activities without a contract. Had 1 year of Goshen school district and couldn't stand it. State scores

You might think that since St. John's is a Christian school that the parents and teachers would behave like Christians to one another. The teachers show a lack of respect for each other behind their backs. It is unfortunate that they also behave this way with many of the parents. If you have a daughter
