Very dedcated staff, that believe in giving students a christian education.


Posted November 21, 2006

St. John does a fantastic job in every area. I have seen many graduates go on to excel in academics and extra-curriculars at the high school level. They are just well-rounded disciples for Christ.

I have 3 childeren currently enrolled at St. John's. The primarly reason for sending my children to a parochial school was the Christ centered, traditional values atsmosphere, which is very strong at this school. However, I have been pleasantly surprised by the outstanding educational curriculum they have established and am amazed at the musical opportunities available (praise choir, band, musicals for all grades, piano and violin lessons). The level of commitment by the staff is wonderful, my children love school and are thriving both spiritually and academically.

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.
