We have been St. John's parents for the past 7 years and have seen the transitions the school has gone through, some great and some not so great, but one thing has always remained the same; the fact that our daughters (9 & 12) continue to get superior education by a group of loving and caring set of

We love St John's and feel that it does a great job of providing children with a fabulous education.

The teachers at St John's know when to prod them along, help them when they need help, and are always available to look for a solution. I have found every teacher to be very accessible when needed. My oldest has moved very successful on to High School. He has found that he and his classmates from St. John's have been very successful in High School. They are highly represented in the AP and Honors Programs. Additionally, they hold leadership positions in their high school. I think that much of this was cultivated at St. John's where there were many leadership opportunities, and class participation, public speaking, and becoming an advocate for your education is encouraged.

We have had 3 children at St. John's over a span of 15 years.I have had children in the public school system and in several different private schools and St. John's is the best.

Her teachers have really brought out the best in her abilities in both math and writing and improved her sense of discipline - they don't miss a trick! There is also a strong emphasis on character and behavior. The school has an outstanding arts program too. All of the St. John's kids that I run into in the community are unfailingly poised, articulate and polite. They know how to conduct themselves with adults - how to carry on a polite conversation and be respectful and articulate. This reflects the school's emphasis on personal accountability -- I can always tells a "St. John's kid" when I meet them. Frankly, when I am around other, non-St. John's students, I am always surprised at their unruliness and lack of discipline. Read less

St. John's used to be a very good school, but I'm concerned about its future. After several upheavals in its staff and administration from 2010-2012 (3 new principals, teachers leaving in droves), it's unclear whether St. John's can regain its footing and continue to maintain academic excellence and

There are only 9 children in 2nd grade this year, and 7 in 1st grade. St. John's is a good school, but the hefty the price tag (and continuous tuition hikes) and administrative turmoil are causing many parents to look elsewhere. And I'm one of them. Read less
