St John is unfortunately not a traditional Catholic school. I had three children attend grade school there - they had four principles in five years. The current principle cares more about technology and what looks good then actual curriculum. I enrolled my children in public school and they were a full grade level behind. The public school was not surprised and said every Saint John student is behind when they arrive.Parents are rude and distant. Which matters since your are expected to volunteer in the school often. The teachers and staff can't seem to manage the classes without parents helping - which is extensive. Between the constant class parties,school events and mass/prayer there is not a whole lot of teaching going on.I wish we had pulled our children sooner.
This is a school that really cares about kids. We have 3 kids that are attending this year and they are excited to be there!
We relocated to Warrenton from a suburban area. We had concerns over the size of the school and how that impacted the offerings. The teachers are amazing, many of which are parents of children that attend the school and are fully vested in providing the best education a small school can offer. The principal is fantastic: he is a leader, strives to get the best programs for the school (which has a new science program and computer lab with iPads for in class work), kind and loving and is very much respected by everyone.
We switched our son over in 4th grade and it has been a wonderful experience. We couldn't be happier with the school. The teachers and the Principal care about the students success and really want them to do well.
We have had children at the school for 8 years and there has been continual growth with the school. The principal has maintained a positive learning atmosphere with a moral responsibiliy. Our children have learned strong comprehensive and writing skills. The parent involvement is extraordinary and you comforted knowing your children are surrounded by loving, nurturing people.
The teachers are kind and understanding. The education requirements are above my expectations. The principal is amazing. He continues to improve the school each year with state-of-the-art technology. It is a small school, but the atmosphere is more of a large family. Parents are very involved and supportive of the school and teachers.
I love the school and the teachers . Is a small school , but make it easy to help the students
