My daughter is a student at St. Johns. I like the structure and organization of the school. The classes are small and stress parental interaction. The curriculum has traditional and modern amenities. All of the classes have Ipads which the kids use with a variety of apps based upon age, the school has a great computer facility with terminals for each student in the class - each class spends time weekly. The students have weekly Spanish, Gym and Art classes as well. very happy with St Johns.

I am thrilled with St. John''s. The academics are challenging and the student/teacher ratios are fantastic. All kids are able to participate in art, music and sports. The standardized test scores are always seem to be above the 95% nationally.
