School Reviews

Both of my children went to St. John Lutheran school, so at this point they feel like family. They have an incredible group of dedicated women who provide an excellent faith based education from preschool through fifth grade. The teachers and assistants truly care about your children and their academic and social success. My husband and I count ourselves as lucky to have found them and my children enjoyed every moment of their time spent at St. John''s.
