St. John Lutheran School is great because the dedicated teachers work with their students individually to help them achieve their full potential. The teachers provide timely feedback to parents on students' performance, progress, and / or any issues. The staff and volunteers also make a point to get to know each student. Overall, St. John got great value for a wholesome education!

St John Is a smaller Christian school with smaller class size the teachers are very dedicated to the students learning. Not only do they get to learn all the regular school subjects They get to learn about Jesus too! I am very thankful for St John Lutheran School.

While public schools in St. Paul cope with about a 30-point gap between White and non-White students, St. John is just 8 points with 40 percent non-White population and 45 percent free and reduced lunch eligible. Add to that St. John has retained its arts, music, and other programming often cut, it is little wonder why its alumni include recently for its 140+ year history a webmaster of a major museum, employees of Fortune 100 companies, Ph.D.'s, and small business owners building up the East Side. My son loves to learn because of St. John's faculty and school family. And, I know that the rigor stated here provides superior preparation for him to attend high school, college, live a productive and moral life, and ultimately for eternal life. The school is very affordable - less than one-third the cost of public school education - and very helpful and loving in its tuition plans. If your child deserves the best education, then your child needs to attend St. John Lutheran School.

This is an outstanding Christian school! It's neatly tucked into a corner of the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood, conveniently close to downtown St. Paul. The staff is extremely professional and they demonstrate a real passion and love for the children. Our child absolutely loves her teacher and is excited to go to school each day. If you are looking for an affordable Christian school with an excellent academic track record, you should put St. John on your short list.

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.
