School Notes:

Faithful teaching of God's word, Reading, English Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, and exposure to arts and music make St. John's and excellent place to learn and grow. Our classroom teaching follows grade level content expectations in a multi-grade/age format. Students become familiar and bond with instructors due large in part to our looping practices, which mean that year after year your child will get to know their teachers.
