our daughter has been attending summer camp for the last three years at St.John's . she really has enjoyed her time there and is sad when the camp ends. I as her mother love the smaller class rooms and feel that it is an advantage academics. I know for myself I want to do the very best that I can for her to give her the best start and foundation to build on. I just don't feel that she is getting this in her public school. the class rooms are over crowded and there are not enough

St. John's has been absolutely a phenomenal school for our two boys ages 8 and 11! It is a nurturing, safe environment that fosters love and respect, as well a challenging academic environment. The teachers and staff are truly involved and are accessible to the parents. We have been involved in their very strong PTO, their Christmas musical performance, their sports teams, etc and we couldn't be happier. This is affordable Christian education at its best! The other week, my 8 year old asked if he could graduate college from St. John's. I think that speaks volumes!

This has been our first year at St. John's and we couldn't be more pleased. Our second grade and fifth grade sons are getting truly a complete education. From strong academics, to an excellent arts and music program, to extracurricular sports teams, to a strong PTO, St. John's has been a safe, nurturing, Christian environment where our kids are thriving!! It is hard to put into words the care and dedication the faculty and staff have for all their students, you have to come visit and you will feel it the moment you are in the door. A fantastic school!
