At St. John the Baptist Catholic School, a ministry of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, it is our mission and purpose to provide a learning environment that fosters academic excellence while developing moral and spiritual character.
One of our program's great strength is that we integrate contemporary and traditional approaches to education. During the fall of 2011, we pioneered our one-to-one Apple device program in which every student and teacher throughout the school was assigned an iPod Touch, iPad, and Macbook. St. John the Baptist Catholic School is a leader among schools in seizing the opportunities of this dynamic technology platform. Read The Oregonian's November 19, 2012 article on our one-to-one program.
Still, we remain committed to a comprehensive program that prepares students to work collaboratively, read critically, think creatively, solve complex problems, to participate actively, and contribute eagerly to the world of which they are a part.
We are a purposefully small school – just under 225 students. We have a distinctively student-centered environment. Faculty and staff know students and parents by name. At St. John the Baptist, we foster an atmosphere of mutual trust and support. Make an appointment to visit us to discover for yourself how the right school can change your child's life.

Spring Musical Performance:
This year's SJB musical, Peter Pan, will be held on Thursday May 23 in the gymnasium. There will be a dress rehearsal performance at 1:00 pm and a feature presentation at 7:00 pm. Please arrive early, as seating is limited.
SJB is happy to share that we will be making e-books available to your students as part of our literacy curriculum and our commitment to 21st century learning. The first of the e-book platforms available to you and your students is TumbleBooks (we are still making arrangements for the second platform). TumbleBooks provides online books, puzzles and games related to literacy, and various other materials. Online books can be played for your students or can be read at the reader's own pace. Because we are a school, students can also take quizzes to check for understanding. Books do not need to be checked-out, and more than one person can use a book at a time. You can access TumbleBooks at home here. Ask our librarian, Mrs. Lowen, for the login and passward.
