I have three children at St. John's and each have had a different experience. As with most schools, there are ups and downs. Some teachers are invested and beyond wonderful and others should probably retire or change careers. Do they even like kids? It can be hard to tell. Choosing a school for your child can be a difficult decision and you never really know if it's the right one until hindsight kicks in. So, ask questions, investigate carefully, and speak directly to the administration and other parents before making your decision.

My daughter has been at St. John's for three years. I have fallen in love with the community and school. The staff is amazing. They truly love the kids and work hard to teach them in their school subjects and about how to be good citizens of the world. The class sizes are wonderful and as a first grader my daughter still has an aid in the classroom to assist the teacher.Lacrosse. I also love that they are exposed to a language starting in pre-school. Every classroom has IPads that are incorporated in the classroom, but the students also go to a computer lab weekly. Sending our daughter to St. John's was the best decision we made, we can't wait to send our other daughter here!

Absolutely the best environment for our family. We have 3 kids at St Johns and each one is thriving. The education can't be beat... but more importantly is the feeling of community. Everyone looks out for each other and really cares about each other. An amazing staff that knows each kid by name. Such a wonderful place! So grateful to be a part of it.
