School Reviews

  • Recommended April 16, 2013 - This is a wonderful facility that has saved my son''s life. He is graduating this year as a senior. The faculty are incredible. It is clear that they all truly care about these boys. He has been given many opportunites that he would not have been able to have in a traditional school like scuba, shooting, etc. I can''t begin to tell you how proud I am of what we have accomplished together as a team. SJMS is and always will be a part of our family. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended March 27, 2013 - Former Cadet At St. Johns Military I would Like to say by far St. Johns Military School Taught me so much about life not only were the instructors there for me the whole way through my time there. As a cadet I was given the best opportunity any person could get for an education as a cadet there we always had the best score in AFI and RFI I was there from 1987-1995 there is not a better school for someone to receive a education at my Dad and I Believe made the right decision I have taken most of what i learned there with me in life today I now own a successful Web Hosting business and an education is the most important thing a person can have I would suggest St. Johns To any parent or student. Sincerely Former Cadet Daniel Ditto - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended March 27, 2013 - The quality of teacher,staff and facilities is top notch. I feel that our son is truely receiving a quality education at SJMS. The teachers are there for the students and form unique bonds with the boys that gives them that home away from home feeling. My son needed a school that had a structured environmet with the ability to show that he was worthy as a person and a valued individual. Sending him away for that first year was the hardest thing we have ever done but it was the best thing for us all. He was headed in the wrong direction and without SJMS I don''t know where he would be. I recommend this school to any parent who is struggling with sending their son to SJMS. It saves lives. - Posted by Parent
