All three of our children have attended St. John's. Our children love the school and enjoy starting thir day with chapel. The teachers are very involved with the children. The Teacher - Student ratio is extremely low (my daughter's 4th grade class had a ratio of 11-1). The computer lab is up to date and our children have developed strong technology skills. The curriculum at the school ephasizes reading, science, math and language skills - as a result, our children are strong in all these subjects and are voracious readers. When our oldest two children aged out of St. John's, they were academically ahead of their peers who had attended public elementary. Our oldest two children miss St. John's and return to volunteer as often as possible - they continue to maintain relationships with the teachers.

Our three children have attended St. John's. The loving enviromnment and high academic standards set in a Christian setting are a part of what makes St. John's a good choice for parents. I hate to see our youngest leave for 6th grade.

St. John is a wonderful school. We are newcomer to this town. Our child is so happy at St.John's. She 'leaps' out of bed in the morning to attend school. We are so happy with this school. We dread the day we have to move her to 6th grade.

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.
