I have twins in the school. We visited many schools but were pleased with the faculty and the environment. Our kids are now going into grade 3 and we love the school. Our kids are advanced, love their teachers, and want to learn and the family culture is incredible. Many parents get involved in activities. The school has created such a warm and large family culture that I am proud that my kids go to SJE. I highly recommend St John to parents. This is the best investment and best education you can give to your children.

I have 4 children at SJE, with kids at each of the 3 campuses. We are approaching our 10th year as a St. John's family. I am so proud of the growth of this school that has occurred under our current administration/leadership. They are determined in their commitment and decisive with their strategies to make SJE better than ever.

We have been at St. John`s for 4 years and have had such a positive experience! Our daughter (rising 4th grade) comes home happy and excited to go back to school the next day. She loves her teachers, all the staff, and her friends. All the faculty and staff are just outstanding - caring, thoughtful, professional, kind, and engaged-..they truly love the students and want the best for them. The school also provides a personalized experience where all children are known and seen. As a parent, I feel confident our daughter is getting the best education and is safe & nurtured while she is in their care. We can`t imagine a better environment for her.

Excellent education. Teachers are caring and work hard to help students. There has been some changes in faculty but no drop off in quality. It is the most difficult and comprehensive academic environment in the area. If your child wants to be prepared for high school and college, this is the right school for them.
