I have 2 daughters at St John`s and my experience so far is wonderful. Not only academics are great but also the environment, the kids, the parents. I fell they are safe in the school and love that when problems arise you are surrounded by parents and teachers that are on the same page. I love to talk with well educated parents that value educated for their sons and daughter as much as I do.

This school offers the perfect combination of high academic standards and accountability to kids at a very young age while making it fun and not losing site that kids still need to be kids. The facilities including the children's center are always clean and staffed with qualified good hearted individuals. I have a daughter finishing up the first grade and a baby boy in the child care center. Worth every penny and more to have the piece of mind that my kids are in good hands!
