My daughter is receiving an excellent, well-rounded education at St. Johns. It is small enough that she receives individualized attention in a supportive, enthusiastic and caring environment but big enough to give her wonderful opportunities for growth. The academics are outstanding. She is performing well above grade level. Class sizes are small and teachers are well-prepared. Technology is utlized extensively throughout the school. The communication from the teachers is thorough and timely. We have been there 3 years and have experienced no turnover among teachers or administrators. An education of this caliber would cost thousands of dollars more elsewhere.
Our children have been enrolled at St Johns for two years now in the ELC and cannot say enough wonderful things about the school, its teachers and the entire community. If you're looking for a place where your children can feel safe, nurtured and challenged academically all in a loving environment then St. Johns is worth a look. There is no greater feeling for a parent than knowing that while you cannot be with them they are in the most trusted of hands. We love St. Johns!!!
Walk through the halls of St. John's during a school day and you will feel the nurturing, caring environment that exists there. Our children LOVE going to school! They are reading books well above grade level. They are filled with an excitement for life, love, friendship and learning. We've had our children in other schools prior to enrolling them in St. John's, so this is written with much school experience (private and public). In the 2012 Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) St. John s tested in the 97th percentile nationally! But, St. John s goes beyond teaching subjects; this school, inside and out, is filled with love, compassion, generosity and integrity.
My daughter is in the first grade and we love it. The teachers are really caring and the curriculum while challenging is age appropriate. Sometimes it is difficult to get all the work in on time, but her teacher is really understanding and helpful. They do ask for a parents to be involved, but they understand that it has to work around your life so they give you lots of different ways to do it.
St. John's has been a great place for my kids in both the Early Leaning Center (18 months old-Pre-K) and elementary school (grade K-8). The Lutheran foundation coupled with the full breadth of academic subjects (including music, art, computers, spanish, reading, and others) has provided my kids with a well-rounded educational environment. We have appreciated the small classroom sizes as well! I always highly recommend St. John's Lutheran School to anyone with children from the age of 18 months to 8th grade.
The only weakness i can spot is lack of extra-curricular activities for the younger students. Otherwise, our experience has been fantastic! Truly a nurturing and loving environment based on a faith-focused education. Our daughter is reading at levels 3-4 grades above her current grade, wonderful! And the Iowa test scores for the entire school...can't get much better!!!
St. John's offers a fantastic educational experience, paying attention to all aspects of a student's development. Our child has not just excelled academically but she has acquired a strong sense of who she is and how to best relate to others. We are thrilled with the wonderful young woman St. John's is helping us develop. You cannot find a better Christian education in Denver!
Excellent academics, strong community, real attention to individual learning styles and developmental goals. The teachers provide regular feedback on student progress and are very available. The curriculum is excellent. The children receive strong values education and guidance in conflict resolution and leadership skills. St. John's is a caring place with strong leadership.
We were very sad to have left St. Johns but could not handle the disruptions. It is amazing how much happier our son is at his new school!
We recently pulled our child from the school...... too much disruption with teachers leaving. The difference in ambiance and energy at her new school struck us immediately and we now get daily reports about her activities, something we were not receiving at St John's. She also has connected with 2 other classmates from St John's!
Excellent School!!! I have been a public educator for the last 17 years and have a pretty good idea of what really goes on in both private and public education. I chose St. John's after looking into many other schools for my children. St. Johns puts a strong emphasis on academics, values, and moral teachings. Something I can't accomplish as a teacher in morally relativistic public setting. My kids love school, there is strong parent involvement and a very caring staff.
Excellent academics & a real passion for learning. The staff at St. John's expects excellence and works with the students and parents to ensure all children reach their fullest potential. Respect for elders & authority is not only taught, but required. St. John's offers a safe and stable learning environment for all. Solid values are modeled. A top notch primary education is offered at this institution.
