School Reviews

  • Recommended October 06, 2012 - Both of my children have attended St. John''s since kindergarten. One is now a freshman in high school and says her classes are so easy. One is in the outstanding middle school now. St. John''s has prepared them for life with strong academic skills and a strong set of Christian values. The facilities are above par, super clean and constantly being updated. The teachers and staff are caring and get to know each child as an individual. My children have completely different learning styles and personalities. They both love their school and each one has been accommodated with their learning styles in the classroom. There are plenty of opportunities for me to get involved with my kids at school. An after school sports program, academic enrichment activities, music lessons, and tutoring program offered by the school are great incentives for the parents. The principal is amazing and has made great strides in keeping St. John''s one of the best schools in the area by improving curriculum and overall student growth. As a parent I feel the investment that I have made in my child''s education at St. John''s is one of the best decisions I have made. I feel they are safe, cared for and they are receiving a superior education in a prestigious school setting. - Posted by Parent
