St. John’s School is a Catholic co-educational elementary school in the Northwest/South Bronx Region of the Archdiocese of New York that provides exceptional academic and religious instruction to students and their families from UPK through 8th grade.
St. John’s School enjoys a rich history as a long standing educational and community presence in the Kingsbridge neighborhood of the Bronx. At its beginnings, over 110 years ago, St. John’s School was serviced by the Sisters of the Convent of Jesus and Mary. To this day, many highly regarded sisters still teach and minister at St. John’s School. In 1950, to accommodate a growing co-educational student body, Monsignor Martin Scanlan invited the De la Salle Brothers of the Christian Schools to head the Boys’ Department. The Brothers enjoyed 20 years at St. John School.
Today, St. John’s School is experiencing revitalization under its new principal, Mr. Edward J. Higgins. With the introduction of Universal Pre-Kindergarten in the 2014-2015 academic year, the development of new extracurricular options, and a school-wide anti-bullying campaign, St. John’s is inspiring its students and the evolving Kingsbridge neighborhood.
The addition of a new school mascot, the St. John’s Eagle, perfectly encompasses the desire of students and faculty to soar to new heights of Gospel living, educational excellence, and personal responsibility! We encourage you to stop by St. John’s for a visit and see if you’re ready to fly with us!
