    I recently transferred my students into St. John's....it was the BEST move I have ever made! I should have started my children there from Kindergarten.

    The teachers really care about you. I went there and am thankful for the sacrafice my parents made in order for me to go to a privat school. It has helped shape me into the person that I am.

    This school has a positive affect on the whole neighborhood. There is such a sense of community and involvement that the children just thrive. The standards are high but the kids know they can achieve.
