Pope John inspires students to become compassionate lifelong learners by nurturing Gospel values, fostering academic excellence, promoting service, and developing global awareness.

Pope John XXIII Middle School’s curriculum is based on guidelines set forth by the Common Core State Standards, Diocese of Paterson, and the Catholic Academy of Sussex County. The goal is to develop the ability to analyze, interpret, and make appropriate choices that are consistent with Christian values. This curriculum includes religion, language arts (reading/literature, grammar, vocabulary, and writing), math, science, social studies, music theory/singing, physical education/health, engineering and design, Spanish, and art.
