Saint John's has definitely helped me grow academically and socially, presenting many opportunities I would not have otherwise had. The members of the administration and teaching faculty really get to know every student and work to support you through any difficulties, be they academic, personal matters, or financial (SJ offers great financial aid). The school also has great athletics and academic extracurriculars if you're looking for engagement beyond the classroom.

SJ most definitely prepared me for pursuing a higher education. The majority of teachers are passionate about helping you to be a successful student with that said, I took all honors and AP classes so the work load was pretty intense but manageable. The one drawback is this school is passionate about sports; needless to say it is a huge part of student life. I am not an athlete but there are many clubs and organizations if you want to be involved. I would recommend the school to those who want an open, out of the box educational experience that you will not get in a public school environment. This school is faith based but by no means is religion forced upon you, it does encourage very deep, in depth conversations on pretty much any subject with objective view points and that are welcome and expected during class discussions.
I loved my four years here! Made a lot of friends, teachers care about students. Lunches very pricey though.
