School Reviews

St. John's has been an excellent choice for my son. He entered in 3rd grade and is now in 7th. Very strong faith commitment along with one of the strongest parochial school academic programs in the area. Dedicated and committed teachers, a very approachable and visionary principal and all in a small school environment. Can't say enough! Would do it again in a heartbeat!
