Positive School Environment
St. John the Evangelist School focuses on creating a positive, safe and nurturing community. We have consistent, school-wide expectations for all our students. With Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS), it is our goal to celebrate students making great choices through words of encouragement and praise but to also have a consistent plan to support students who need help meeting these school-wide expectations. St. John the Evangelist is a PBIS Maryland Recognition School.
To foster a positive school environment where all students are educated in a safe and caring atmosphere, all Archdiocesan schools will follow established procedures for prevention and intervention for bullying, harassment or intimidation.
Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports (PBIS) has been implemented in every Archdiocesan elementary and high school to enhance academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
St. John the Evangelist School achieved the Bronze level in its first year eligible with PBIS 2015-16.
