A quaint little school with loving teachers. Most parents feel St. Johns school has a stronger academic program than the local public schools. They also provide art, music, lots of outdoor play and fun school assemblies-- all in a beautiful setting. Great place to send the little ones.

My daughter is going into her fourth year at St. John's. My son is starting his second year there. This school is amazing. The teachers are incredibly responsive and offer a one-on-one experience you won't find elsewhere. When my daughter struggled with reading, the teachers stepped in, offering additional help before, during and after school. The teachers for this coming year have even sent both kids postcards saying how excited they are to have them this year. The community of St. John's is a loving and welcoming place. I highly recommend this school.

My children have been enrolled at this school for two years and I see that their academic progress has declined. I thought it was great that the student / teacher ratio was low and the tuition cost was affordable. but I will not put my children's education at risk to save a few dollars.

We love St. John's School. It is a small community school with lots of individualized attention, small classes and affordable tuition.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
