St. John's Lutheran is a wonderful school! The teachers are all highly qualified and several are absolutely amazing. The curriculum and the teachers are very adaptable and can meet the needs of both lower level and higher level learners in a variety of subjects so that each student receives an education appropriate to their needs. The academics at this school are outstanding and students from this school consistently perform well above grade level on standardized tests. Strong academics in a caring, supportive, Christian learning environment combine to make a wonderful school!

The curriculum is challenging, the staff are caring, and the variety of programs is excellent, with many sports, music, and other extracurricular activities. The school is large enough to offer many programs but small enough for students and teachers of various grades to get to know each other. The school and PTO offer many opportunities for parents to help with educational pursuits and fundraising opportunities.

Excellent academics and caring teachers in a Christian setting. Tuition is very reasonable. Outstanding teachers, most with master degrees. Look at their high test scores, a true gem of a school that not many know about!

The school has a fantastic environment for little kids, parents & families and offers advanced learning that will prepare kids for high school & beyond. St. John's makes great little people and encourages advanced studies in reading, math & science. Sports & Music are also a part of this fantastic, personal private school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
