St. John's has been a tremendous benefit for our son. The school provides the structure and challenges our son needed to help him transition to young adulthood. The staff truly cares for each cadet and they realize that they fulfill not only the role of instructor for the boys, but they also become like their family away from home. Our son has learned skills and discipline since enrolling at St. John's and his academic performance has improved substantially. The student to teacher ratio has a lot to do with this but also when the teachers take a personal interest in the cadets they respond by putting in more effort. We can't say enough about the school.
I'm an alumni and sincerely think this school changed my life for the better. I think anybody who goes to this school will be a better person for it.
I would recomend St. Johns to any parents. My son would have never graduated from high school had it not been for them. They are such a great school that I just can not say enough about them. They also taught my son how to be a man along with a very good education. I am forever in their debt for all they did for my son!
Last week I enrolled my son in St. John's Military School. Many staff members reached out to both of us offering personal support whenever needed. The affection between the returning students and staff was obvious. Staff members also organize extracurricular activities for the young men to pursue. From the time we arrived, another student was with my son, offering companionship and easing the transition. Hearing former students who have returned to work at the school talk about the signifigance of SJMS in their lives, I am hopeful that my son also will experience success. Patrice Jennison
Just think, a school where discipline, honor, integrity, respect and hard work are taught and rewarded! My son, at the local high school had a GPA of less than 1, now has a 3.57. What more do I need to say!
I attended SJMS form the 10th to the 12th grade. My 9th grade year in public school was a disaster. My first grading report at SJMS put me at the top of honorable mention list, and after that I was always on the honor roll. The structure and environment were great in helping me find my way.
St. John's not only teaches respect for others, it teaches the boys respect for themselves. I am so very proud of my son, but better yet, he is proud of himself. The personnel at the school have become family to us. It was the best decision I ever made for my son and his future. I would recommend St. John's to anyone wanting the best academic education and life skills education for their son. I can't thank everyone at St. John's enough for everything they have done over the last 2 years for my son and our family!
SJMS is an all-male boarding school where the students are part of the Corps of Cadets. The Corps is lead by the cadets and supervised by the staff. It is a tremendous way for the students to develop their leadership potential in a structured environment.
SJMS saved my son's life. He was encouraged to do his personal best academically as well as develop his self-esteem and leadership skills applied by the military structured discipline system. The teacher / pupil ratio ideally allowed the highly skilled teachers to help each child with their individual academic and personal needs. The Commandant and his assistant knew each child's name. My son often thanks me for his experience at SJMS as an upstanding soldier in the Army Marksmanship Unit.
