Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
They school simply plays favorites. Cliques are deeply ingrained and favorite families will always take priority. The favorites know who they are and can and do bully those not at the top.

Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
The school is extremely rigid, even in the lowers and preschool. Children are expected to act perfectly, to stand in line and sit still and quiet for long periods. If you have a wiggly little one this school will make your and your child's life very difficult. The teachers break the child's self-worth and esteem down by continually highlighting unapproved behavior such as talking out of turn or turning around in line as highly disruptive, while ignoring positive behaviors. They will and do play favorites so be very wary.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Lower school is devoid of actual leadership. Headmaster is only concerned in protecting himself and the school even at the cost of a small child's self esteem and sense of safety. I cannot say enough to warn those with small ones against this school. They will not act in your child's best interest.

Develops character: Disagree


- a
I'm not sure how some of these teachers and especially the new headmaster could possibly teach integrity, compassion and respect when they are completely incapable of displaying these themselves. Worse than a greedy corporation.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
At least in the lower school and preschool program, teachers are more concerned with having children that will sit quietly and still for long periods rather than teaching these small ones to adjust to a structured environment. They place all the responsibility on parents who are not in the classroom. Only a negative focused behavior structure. No positives like treasure box or a simple rewards system.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Too much homework. Poor communication with teachers.



- a
Very bad pre K experience with the teacher. Staff was only interested in protecting the school. Punishment driven, negative focused behavior structure. Very disorganized. Experienced that left our small child scarred. Don't take the risk on this poorly thought preschool. Save your money, your child will get a more fulfilling and positive early education in a public school.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
St. Johns has a impressive honor code. Strong character is a must on this campus. The school holds strong to their handbook. If you break the rules, you are asked to leave immediately.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Many of the teachers are worthy of huge praise at St. Johns. They love their job and it shows in their enthusiasm. These stellar teachers all go out of their way for students. Only a select few, who have been on the job too, long are a apathetic.

Amount of homework: Neutral


- a
Don't be fooled by the other reviews from a community member. There is an insane amount of homework for students. This is probably warranted for the math classes where repetition and memorization creates solid math students. The rest of the classes... the jury is out.
