SJFS Students and Teachers


Saint John Fisher school offers a rigorous, research-based curriculum to student in grades pre-K through 8. Modeled on the expectations of the Common Core State Standards, the curriculum at Saint John Fisher challenges students to examine the world through a critical lens, fostering deep-thinkers with a great sense of wonder and curiosity. 

The Saint John Fisher is interdisciplinary, building bridges between subject areas and various academic disciplines. Students are encouraged to see the connections between their learning and the world in which they continue to grow and develop. In the school’s junior high, students complete a rigorous Global Studies program that connects present day issues with historical themes through an emphasis on reading, writing, and critical thinking skills. 

The goal of the Saint John Fisher curriculum is to develop skills in and appreciation for language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, art, music, computer science and physical education. Religious education is at the core of the curriculum St. John Fisher School.
