San Juan Del Rio is such an amazing school. Teachers are very caring and go out of their way to help students. Students are challenged and held to high standards. So proud for Ms. Barta becoming principal. She truly deserves it and know that she will lead the school into a successful direction for years to come. Parents are very involved and collaborate with teachers in helping children develop Christian values and reach their highest potential.

This is the best decision I have ever made! It is good to know that my children's future begins here. I initially started them in public school in St. Johns County, actively involved, but still felt I was not receiving the review I needed about my child. Only this year did I find there were so many things that I was not informed of by the public school. I was able to find the help I needed for my son. I know there are several gifted/advanced children in this school that definitely have activities that go beyond what the public system provides.

This faith based school is an amazing place for children to learn and grow. We have had two children here for over five years and absolutely love it! They have the capacity to challenge our older, gifted child and work with our younger child who has processing challenges.

If you're child is simple, easy going, and not above average in intellegence. This is the place for them. If you're child is gifted or different, they'll be bored to tears and teased relentlesly bullied.

I attending this school all ten years. I am proud to say that I have learned skills that have helped me beyond the class room and high school. This was the best thing my parents have ever done for me and it is worth every penny.

As a seasoned former teacher in public schools, as well as in one of the finest private schools in Jacksonville, I feel well-qualified to rate San Juan del Rio as superior in all categories that make a school great: teachers,staff,campus,parent involvement, extra curricular activities, emphasis on caring for others, et al. I'm proud to say my second grade granddaughter is a student at SJDR..

I have found this school to be superior to the local public schools in every catagory. There is a sense of family due in part to the small size but mainly due to the involvement of every single parent. The entire staff including the principal knows each and every student and their families. It is a safe and drug free environment.

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.
