School Reviews

5  
We have had all of our children attend St. John since preschool. We absolutely love the school, great academics, selection of sports for grades 5-8, and an incredible school community that really pitches in to help whenever it is needed. If you are looking for a Catholic school - this is it! Our kids have lifelong friends when they graduate in 8th grade and are more than ready for the challenges of high school.
