I agree with the comment below about the lack of instruction in the upper grades. Specifically 2nd, 3rd and 4th. It was basically a free for all with the kids doing worksheet after worksheet in place of lessons. No engaging of the students and encouraging them to ask questions and participate. Very old fashioned and NOT open to change when it could benefit the students greatly. I think I read somewhere else on here a parent writing, it's not our fault so go away. That's exactly what they are like at this school.
This school is a fantastic school with fully credited teachers. Our kids love this school and they are learning such advanced academics that when our daughter started public high school she was ahead in a lot of her classes! My husband and I highly recommend this school, they do so much for all the kids and treat them like their own.
My kids love this school. We moved to this area based on this school. It came highly recommended by a lot of people. The school is always trying to grow and improve. It is worth the money for the small classrooms, loving and caring teachers and the word of God. I really hope that they will have high school added down the road. I would send my kids to this school till they graduate
Well first I want to say that St. John's is the best in town. When I was looking for a private school here in the valley for my kids; St. John's has them all beat, plus I heard they are going through the accreditation process! I have recommended the school to many of my friends and still would. Where I would say they need help is with the principal. I have had some friends that don't want to come back because of her and have tried talking them into staying. Just hope things change there because they are great!
I love the St. John's preschool! The teachers truly love all the kids and you can see it on their faces and the way they treat the kids. I trust them with my precious little gift and am so glad they are learning about God too! I can't wait for them to go into kindergarten next year and be with Mrs. Bellamy (Mrs. Nancy)! We love you St. John's.
Overall the school is very good and the preschool is great and I would recommend it to my friends as I have in the past!!! However just as with anything there is problems that need to be dealt and I've noticed with the principal. Over the course of watching the school and seeing how she administrates...she doesn't. She's not good at her job and I feel St. John's can do better. Once this problem is taken care of it think St. John's will do great.
The 4th grade teacher is a wonderful teacher. My son worked his hardest for her and had his most successful year on the honor roll. His good habits are continuing in 5th grade too. I had no problems with communication, but then my kid did his homework and paid attention in class. I'm grateful that she was my sons teacher. St. John's is a wonderful school with wonderful teachers.
I have no idea what this person is talking about. The 4th grade teacher is probably one of the best teachers my kids have ever had in their education. She is so helpful and kind and really prepared my child for 5th grade. Plus the field trips were excellent! The education and experience my kids have had with her were worth every penny. Turn in assignments and raise your child to be smart and you won't have any issues. It's not that difficult.
I know the lady who wrote that last review - my child was in that class, too, and we love that teacher (and all the teachers at St. John's). She's just mad because the teacher wouldn't send her kid to 5th grade. My son used to tell me all that time how that child never turned in any work. St. John's is worth every penny - the teachers are loving, caring, and well-educated. Don't let one nut job's opinion keep you away from a fantastic school!
My son went there since preschool. We are not returning for 5th grade. The 4th grade teacher is the worst no commucation. The Principle dose nothing about all the problems at the school. There attitude is "it is not there fault so go away." After 4th grade there class sizes drop in half. There is a reason alot of kids do not return. paying for private but getting public.
great school. Great learning atmosphere. alot of parent support . and a great staff. We love st John's.
I went here and I got out becuse of the limited academic opertunitys.
I wouldnt send my kids to any other school. Not only did they learn academically but the teachers made the experience an unforgettable.
Great education in a Christian setting. Some limited activities though, (i.e sports and extracirrcular)
A great school and community where children are encouraged to learn and to grow. The teachers are wonderful and loving and excellant educators.
