Spanish, art, computers, music, science (and I mean REAL science), reading, religion (open to all faiths), math, community involvement. St. John's students are involved in all of these starting in the pre-K programs. It is a school which focuses on the whole child and on each child, with teachers and administrators who are dedicated to challenging academics as well as creative learning.
I am constantly amazed at the quality of education my child receives at St. John's. Upper grades receive the extra attention and time that students in public school seem to miss out on. There are people of all faiths and backgrounds and if there was ever a better investment that I've made, it's this.
St. John's (SJES) has been in Abilene for 55 years and provides an excellent environment for children to develop a love of learning, not just the basics, but also the language of God's people. Equally important is that all are accepted, no matter what they (or their parents) believe. As we say at the end of each chapel service, 'you go to your house of worship and I'll go to mine, but we'll walk along together, thanks be to God.'
Small class size and caring teachers make for an awesome learning environment. St. John's has these qualities and more. All faiths attend here making it incredibly diverse. Even the open campus feel separates the school from the 'institutional' feel creating a home away from home environment. Truly and A+ school!
Class sizes are remarkably small (about 10-1 student ratio) - Has enrinchment programs: Music, Art, Spanish Culture Classes, Acclerated Reading Programs. Very loving Christian Environment. People of all faiths attend.
