St. John's has been a great educational experience. Tuition is very reasonable, but academics are in no way sacrificed as all three of my children consistently test above grade level on standardized testing. A low student-to-teacher ratio ensures each student receives the necessary attention. Traditional school subjects are taught, as well as religion, physical education, and art.

We have one child in this school and we absolutely love it! Not only does she get the basic education she needs to succeed but she gets a Christian education she desires. It is teaching her what she needs and is being prepared for her future.
