My daughter has just finished her first year at St. John's and we are so happy with our choice to send her there. The teachers are very knowledgable, staff is helpful, and parents are very involved and friendly. I am confident that she is getting an excellent education and look forward to many more years there.

After a few years in a public school, we are most excited about how happy our children are to attend St. Johns School each day. The curriculum is strong and they work hard, but the activities that they can become involved in make it a special place for our kids. It is their second family, their family away from home...who could ask for anything more?

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.
