I really enjoyed attending St. John's. It was definitely a good foundation not only in academics, but also in my Christian faith. I made friends that became like family to me. I am still in touch with them to this day even after several years of graduating. The staff definitely tends to the needs of each student to the best of their abilities. They challenge those that need it, and help those that need additional attention. Also, St. John's has been great at creating new clubs/activities for students to be involved in. From theater to science clubs to athletics, St. John's has a little of everything for everyone. St. John's also has a close knit community. No only between the students and the teachers, but with the parents as well. The staff encourages the parents to be involved in their children's education and activities. From brush with art to school tournaments, you see St. John parents everywhere. Overall, St. John's has a positive atmosphere and I am deeply grateful that I was able to attend this school from kindergarten to 8th grade.
