St. John the Evangelist
It is my pleasure to welcome you to our web site and introduce you to
St. John the Evangelist School. St. John the Evangelist School is a
parish, Catholic preschool (age 4) and elementary school (K-8) for boys
and girls. We welcome students of all faiths and beliefs. At St. John
the Evangelist School we seek to live out the Gospel message through
our service to one another and to the larger community. We are ever
thankful for the support of the parishioners, parents, priests, and the
Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters in sustaining the school’s mission to
integrate Catholic philosophy with academic excellence.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children.
Therefore, our intent is to assist them in this mission by helping
children develop their potential and intellectual curiosity through a
flexible and diversified curriculum. We guide the children to
appreciate the uniqueness of themselves and others, and to celebrate
the diversity in our school and beyond. We encourage students to
recognize their responsibility to apply Catholic values to the problems
of today’s society and to reach out to those in need in their local and
Finally, we strive to give students a firm moral foundation so they can
succeed in future challenges to serve others as Christ instructed us to
do. We invite you to enjoy the materials presented in our web site and
pay us a visit. St. John’s is located in Silver Spring, Maryland just
north of I-495. Hope to see you soon!
