Welcome to PJPII

Welcoming, hard-working, dedicated, and knowledgeable are just a few of the adjectives used to describe our faculty and staff. We have worked very hard to compile a quality staff of teachers and aides to promote  professional excellence in all subject areas. Our staff is one of the finest in the greater Chicagoland area with 70% of our teachers currently holding at least one master’s degree or better, some with Special Education and Teaching English Language as a Second Language Certifications.

This past summer we purchased new Chromebooks for 90% of our students, while 100% of our classrooms have been outfitted with state of the art Promethean Instructional Panels. These upgrades have moved us right to the top of the educational industry list of standards. This school year we plan to add $150,000 of new, highly functional classroom furniture, to all of our educational spaces, from classrooms to the library. All of these upgrades, along with the incredible support of the Big Shoulders Foundation, will make PJP II a “destination school” on the southwest side of Chicago for years to come.


As you continue to explore the rich history of Pope John Paul II School, I invite you to come and see us in person. We are always eager to welcome prospective students, families, alumni and friends to our building. 

Mr. Philip Cahill, Principal


Pope John Paul II School - “The school where children Care about Learning, but as importantly, Learn about Caring.”
