We've been very happy at St. John. Our kids are receiving an excellent education, supported both in their areas of strength and in the areas where they have needed extra help. The school offers free after-school tutoring, which has been great when our kids needed it. The principal is new as of spring 2020 and is excellent. She is a strong leader, is extremely well organized, and has a clear vision for the school. We feel so blessed to have found an affordable private school option for our family in a time when we really needed it. The school is TK-8, which is great, too, as our kids can stay in one place for a stretch and really develop continuity with their education. All in all, very happy with this school.
