We moved from a great school in the Atlanta area a few years ago and did not know what school to choose here in Savannah after touring a few and asking several people. Our kids liked St. James best and they couldn't exactly say why. Now I know. It is because of the welcoming feeling you get when you arrive, the love and encouragement the teachers and staff show the students, the desire to always be better and improve the curriculum, and the faith that is instilled in the children and the desire to give back to the community. We feel so blessed to have found St. James and know we are giving our children a great foundation!

As a St. James School Alumni and now parent of 3 SJS students, SJS is my first choice! Every teacher presents a passion for their commitment to the students.
