School Notes:

The St. Johns version of “straight A’s” goes beyond the usual academics, athletics, and arts straight through to “anything.” We offer outstanding opportunities—make that outrageous opportunities for a school this size—and most important, everyone can and does take part. That means that students can do all the things that interest them and discover new interests, and talents, they didn’t know they had. And whether our soccer team is playing for the state championship again or the St. Johns Singers are performing at the White House, there’s plenty of opportunity to develop those talents to a high level and make a mark. Meanwhile, students are developing confidence, time management skills, and a solid and broad academic foundation that starts with language instruction in PK and continues to Upper School’s honors, AP, and elective options. Our students are safely and joyfully busy, and they become not only well-rounded individuals but also engaged and engaging people eager to get involved in all that life offers. Dedicated to providing opportunities to expand academic, athletic, artistic, and “anything” horizons, we aren’t just “A rated.” We’re “A plus.”
