Who are Our Scholars?
Our scholars come from all kinds of families and backgrounds. At JPII, children can succeed no matter where they’re from, their faith background, or their family’s resources. It’s great to be a Saint!
St. John Paul II School welcomes everyone. Among our 158 scholars:
- 76% qualify for free and reduced lunch (Government-set qualifying level is $34,450 or less for a family of four.)
- 67% are English Language Learners (ELL)
- 91% are children of color
- 90% are Catholic
Scholars come not only from Northeast Minneapolis, but from all over the Twin Cities, including Brooklyn Center, Columbia Heights, Robbinsdale, and Fridley.
