I am going to be a senior at St. Johns High School this year. I have been very involved in many clubs, theater, and sports. There are many options to choose from, and a good fit for almost every student. I have also taken AP and Honors Classes and would say that they provide a challenge for students. Good grades are definitely obtainable if the individual is willing to work hard. Most teachers are willing to work with busy schedules if a student needs help outside of class as well.
Review St. Johns High School
I love the music program at the high school. In my high school career I would wake up everyday and look forward to band. It is something I always have enjoyed and I enjoyed it more in high school. The music program at St. Johns High school is different than most schools because the top 3 chairs in symphonic band get the opportunity to play with the orchestra in a symphony. I have been in symphony all 3 years possible in high school. I was second chair my sophomore year and 1st chair my junior and senior year. I also love the opportunity to play in the pit orchestra for the fall musicals which is a great eye opener to how difficult some music can get. As someone who is going to major in music the music program at St. Johns High School has been one of opportunities, fun, and learning. Here at St. Johns High School my education, whether in music or math, has never ceased to grow and I have never ceased to learn new things.
Great small town feel with caring community members. I often felt that it was not what you know but who you know especially when trying to get on various sports teams or clubs. The classes are for the most part structured well, although because of the fact that the school is on a trimester schedule, there are less weeks to cover all of the necessary information making it difficult to stay on pace at times.
