I am sending my kids to this school because I trust the people that teach there and what they are teaching. Teachers are suppose to be unbiased, but that is NOT what we have found in the public school system. We are a strong conservative family and we were homeschooling until we found St. John's. They do great things with the resources they have and more families should check them out, they also help with tuition if you are unable to pay the full amount.

We have been thrilled to send our children to St Johns. My daughters attended the local public school last year and I was satisfied ; But, we are so much happier that they are at St Johns. The girls are thriving. They are receiving an excellent education, building character, and their faith is stronger than ever. Thank you St Johns for being such a positive influence.

I send my kids here for the excellent education. I could care less what the gym looks like, or that there is no cafe. Big deal, I make a better lunch than any school cafe and I'm not raising pro athletes. What I am raising are 2 smart, funny, caring boys that understand respect, hard work and accountability. This is what they learn here. Any issue I have had to deal w/ is handled swiftly. There is a sense of community and I like it. I don't need the staff to kiss up to me..I need them to teach my children, and they do a fine job. I feel confident my kids are receiving the best I can offer them. I want my children to grow up to be confident and willing to accept responsibility...not whiney brats w/ no discipline. They love the school and so do I...how often do you hear that?

I have had children at St Johns for many years. It has been an an absolutely positive experience in our life. My children were academically ahead going to high school. Not only were they ahead, they were taught values that made them an all around successful person. I know when I drop my children off at school there is not a worry. I know they are taken care off and they will be taught by example. Not only that I feel lucky that can attend this school.

My children received a great education at St. John's. The teachers really care and the students learn to have respect and confidence as well as knowledge.

I have nothing but good things to say about this school! Great test scores, great teachers, clean, organized learning environment. Faith is very important to the daily lesson plans and daily interactions. We are very happy here.

My child has been attending St. John the Baptist for 4 years and has loved every moment of it. Their teachers are phenomenal. This school is not only academically outstanding but it teaches our children high values and morals. St. Johns has created a wonderful feeling of community for our children and families. It truly is more than a school to us- we are like family.

I have been very pleased with St. John the Baptist School. The teachers, principal and staff are warm, receptive to parents, and teach by example. I feel comfortable sending my children to a school every day where I know they are both physically and spriritually safe. They have been very happy at St. John's and it shows in their progress.

My father went to St. John's, I went to St. John's and now our daughter's go there. I love the small size of the school & the classrooms as it promotes a bond with the younger & older children you can't get at large schools. The curriculum is challenging & teaches the children so much more than I would dream they would learn at early ages. The staff is loving, considerate & really want more for the students. We are blessed to have our children at St. John's!!

Excellant staff, warm atmosphere, good discipline. Medium to small class numbers, but a lot of individual attention always. No cafeteria, but library, computer lab, gymnasium, playground, field, and 2 seperate buildings.
