Welcome to Pope John Paul II High School!
For more than a decade I have been blessed to help nurture south sound students through adolescence into young adulthood. As our school has matured, an incredible culture of community has developed. JPII students are challenged to reach their full potential—academically, socially and spiritually—and they are supported all the way. Meaningful experiences occur every day in our classrooms, halls, and across the digital bridge we use to stay connected, despite times when learners cannot gather in-person.
The JPII experience is founded on relationships – with outstanding teachers, with family and peers, and with God. I firmly believe that the strength of this community, which our students continually refer to as a “second family”, is the foundation of our students’ success.
As we enter our second decade of education in this time of global pandemic, JPII Eagles continue to soar. Our students are finding unique ways to build community in the midst of social distancing. Our new house system, designed by students and modeled on the charisms of Pope John Paul II, is deepening students’ connection to the greater school community and bringing focus to the virtues of faith that were the foundation of our patron’s incredible ministry to youth. From student leadership to parent support to fiscal strength, it is clear the Holy Spirit is at work at JPII.
There is a wide horizon for every student who walks through our doors. I invite you to explore all we have to offer and begin your JPII journey today.
