School Reviews

I would say that St. Johns is a great school for your child. Most of the classrooms are very structured. The teachers are very approachable to talk to about anything, as well as the staff. The principle is great. He is well aware of everything that is going on throughout day, and handles everything in the best way possible. There is no better place for your child during the day to get the best education as possible.
