Girl in first grade concentrates on her schoolwork.


A large majority of our scholars are English learners, meaning that English is not their first language. This often means scholars are behind grade level as they struggle to learn both English and the subject being taught. Yet, by the time they are in 8th grade, the scholars at St. John Paul II outscore their peers at nearby schools on standardized tests.
