Today’s topics: Catholic Schools Week: St. John School in the North End of Boston
Summary of today’s show: St. John’s School in the North End of Boston is one of the oldest Catholic schools in the area, at 120 years, but it’s also on the cutting edge of education as well. Karen McLaughlin, Margaret Betts, and Julia Daley join Scot Landry during Catholic Schools Week to talk about the school; its Catholic character; how the unique character of the North End affects education; how the school draws students from well outside the North End and has been growing dramatically; how the children take Italian language and culture classes; how the school works with the local Coast Guard station, the North Bennett Street School; and what makes it special for the staff and students alike.
