St. John's School Reviews

St. John’s goes above and beyond to prepare you for college and the workforce. However, with such a future-focused mentality, the school’s culture attracts a lot of perfectionistic personalities, which tend to create an anxious learning environment that is largely dependent on the opinions of others. This environment is actively combatted by the majority of faculty members, so it really doesn’t come from the school itself, rather the people it attracts. I am beyond grateful to have had the privilege of attending such an academic school, but I would love to see a less stressful, more inclusive environment being fostered by both the school itself and its community in the future.

From an outsiders perspective, St. John’s is a great place; that’s until you’ve lived the experience. The administration is focused solely on molding the student into their ideal picture rather that to be themselves in order to improve their rankings. Most teachers themselves are very kind and supportive, but are run by a wicked and corrupt administration. From past experience, rather than deal with a problem in a diplomatic and fair way, the administration will not address the problem and turn it into a matter of something that deviates FAR from what actually happens. St. John’s cares more about the money, reputation, and rankings of the school rather that bettering their students. I would DEFINITELY recommend that you not send your child to this school. The rankings that are graded above average are blinded by the outer appearance of the school and don’t see what happens behind closed doors.
The teachers are very accommodating and willing to assist you in whatever way possible. The course work is interesting and the classes are well taught. The academics are challenging, yet manageable if you understand how to manage your time. Time management is a skill they help you with if you are struggling . You will learn good studying habits. They have a variety of clubs you are able to choose from and you may even begin your own. There is lots of school spirit and the culture is uplifting. The sports teams are an excellent community and promote teamwork/collaboration.
