They study at home and do homework in class. This is an innovative approach that works for children who don't have the right kind of parental support for HW at home. Also, overall, studies show that HW is not helpful at home.
The school is truly a family away from home. My son is now in 7th grade, but has been there since 3rd. They help all children feel safe, welcomed and motivated to learn and participate. He has truly thrived here, from being an avg. grade student to all A's, while loving his friends and teachers. Great principal too!
The school creates a small family away from home. My son has attended the school for the past 2 years and I love the way they are patient, willing to communicate and welcoming to parents. I would highly recommend the school to future Cougars seeking a warm and loving environment.
My daughter is enjoying her experience here after transferring from another school. She is excelling in her classes, making friends and also enjoying extra-curricular activities. The principal and teachers are great and the parents are amazing.
We have 2 daughters in this school and have been very happy with the quality of learning. The principal Mr. Kim is a rare gem who goes above and beyond what is required of a principal. He is innovative, compassionate, respected and a visionary. He takes the time to know students names and engages them personally. When you walk through the school you will see him constantly interacting with student in the hallways, during recess or school activities. He has an open door policy, is open to parents concerns, suggestions and opinions and is truly dedicated and constantly finding ways to improve the school. He has created a powerful community of learners and genuinely cares about the kids, teachers and overall school community. The overall feel is one of large supportive family!
The great thing about the school is it offers small class sizes in a positive, warm, disciplined, safe and nurturing Christian environment and parents feel valued and respected. The school is highly academic, teachers are outstanding, students perform well, parent involvement is high and sports and after-school programs are great! We have had nothing but positive experiences and would highly recommend the school to families!
As a former graduate of SJCS, I was extremely blessed to have been able to be apart of such an amazing community like this. SJCS has such an amazing faculty and staff, and the principal is outstanding! The teachers are VERY dedicated and kind towards all the students. They offer a variety of sports as well as clubs! I must say that I miss the music programs. It was extremely fun practicing for a Christmas show. I definitely recommend this school to family and friends!
The school is a happy and clean place of worship and learning. Quality of education is high and so are expectation from staff and students. Knowing the sacrifice parents and teachers make to positively impact our children, as a volunteer, I find myself wanting to do more.
