This is a school you will be glad you chose. Nice people teaching kids to be young adults of merit. It is a principled group of educators who help kids to grow in all aspects of their lives. Remarkably dedicated teachers, strong support from the church to which the school is attached and a curriculum that deeply impresses us grandparent types.
As someone who has worked with schools around the country, I can honestly say St. John’s has a highly enthusiastic and dedicated faculty and administration who genuinely cares about all their students. If you spend just a few minutes around the school, you will see happy kids who are engaged with their classmates and learning. What I love most is seeing confident and well-prepared graduates get in to their top choices for high school and beyond.
St. John's Episcopal School in Olney, Md is a wonderful, safe, and stimulating environment for young minds to grow. Our children look forward to the start of school each year. The teachers are phenomenal and the curriculum is appropriate. We are looking forward to another fantastic year at St. John's.
Last November, we transferred our daughter into the Preschool 4 class at St. John's. After a difficult experience at another school, we were so grateful for the kindness and consideration of the admissions director, head of school and Preschool 4 teacher during our initial visits. The small class size, inclusiveness, and emphasis on character-building were the perfect combination for our daughter. She is now more confident than ever and is thriving both socially and spiritually.
Additionally, opportunities to see all of the students perform several times throughout the year, including the International Festival where all classes do a thoughtfully choreographed dance routine and display appreciation for other cultures and customs, is more than we could have expected. Filled our hearts with so much joy and pride.
Top notch school with amazing families and staff. You won't regret sending your child(ren) here!
Our daughter came to St. John's this year as a first grader and we couldn't be happier with the experience. The small class sizes are just what we were looking for, providing individual attention from the teacher that each student deserves. Our daughter is appropriately being challenged above her grade level and is excelling. Mr. Stevens is a kind, caring principal who truly cares about the school and his students. Every teacher, parent and administrator we have met has welcomed us into the St. John's family with open arms. We are thrilled to be a part of this community and look forward to our daughter finishing eighth grade at St. John's.
