St. Johns Day School Photo #1 - We love SJDS!
St. John's Day School provides students with a well-rounded educational curriculum in social studies, science, mathematics, reading, spelling, and so on.
Teachers attend selected continuing education courses each year to stay up-to-date with the latest teaching methods and educational tools.
In addition, individualized attention in each subject area is afforded every student because of our size and student/teacher ratios.
St. John's Day School philosophy is the development of each child's self-concept.
We also believe concerned discipline is essential to the growth of the individual.
Rooted in a Christian setting, we believe that Christian principles and content materials from Holy Scriptures should be taught in regular chapel programs and activity periods.
We also believe that the headmaster, teachers, and other personnel should exemplify Christian morals and ethics in their own attitudes and actions.
The goals of all our activities at St. John's Day School is to develop learning habits and character traits which will enrich personal living and result in responsible citizenship.
