The following subjects are taught in the Los Angeles Archdiocesan schools: Religion, Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music, Art, and Physical Education. St. John Fisher School also teaches Spanish and Computers.

In order to provide our students with a Catholic education of the highest quality, St. John Fisher School strives to meet all curriculum standards at the State and Archdiocesan levels. This is done through the faculty’s annual assessment of current textbooks, supplemental materials, technological advances, and academic achievement, at each grade level.

​The assessment of each child is taken seriously and plotted against the state standards of each grade level. Promotion of students to the next grade level is contingent upon the successful completion of the current academic grade level standards. The curriculum academic standards for our School, as well as the State Framework and Standards for each grade level, are available for review in each classroom and the School office.
