I have two children at St. John's. We chose St. John's because of the nurturing environment, specialist teachers, and focus on character development. Our children have benefited from small class sizes and dedicated teachers and staff. We have been extremely pleased with the education our children have received.

St. John's has the small class room size that children need to thrive academically and interpersonally. The school is rich with tradition and continues to be committed to preserving childhood. The teaching staff is very committed to the school's mission. My daughter is very happy at St. John's and continues to grow in her confidence and academic preparation. Check out the school- you will experience the difference.

This is a very unique school! I have never seen a school as wonderful and loving as St. Johns! I have two kids at St. John's and they have blossomed at this school. We visited many schools before choosing St. John's and the kids were happier there than any school we visited

The learning environment at this school is wonderful -- teachers are exceptional and the students are challenged and happy. One of the highlights is the specialist teachers - students work in small groups (half the class for some specials) with a science teacher, art teacher, spanish teacher, technology teacher, PE teacher, music teacher, and librarian. It is a unique place and my kids love it.
