St. John's School Reviews

St. John's faculty are super engaged, hands on, and truly passionate about what they are teaching. They seem to genuinely care about every student. They are available to simply talk to whether you need help to understand a concept or are having a bad day. Similarly, the students are almost all just as engaged and interested in what they are learning. I do have some comments/complaints. The school and the students at the school have A LOT of money that is used for the most boujee things imaginable. 10 thousand dollars on cookie cake? Yes. Getting too lazy to water the grass so they spray paint the lawn green? Of course! Building a new baseball field, realizing it faces the wrong way, and then rebuilding it again to make it face the other way? Yep. The school is constantly under construction building many often unnecessary buildings and fields.

The quality and expertise of the teachers is by far the biggest advantage St. John's holds over other schools. The teachers are also friendly, caring, and always willing to help. They greatly contribute to the school culture as well, regularly attending athletic events and fine arts performances. Academically, most are very knowledgeable about their respective subjects; of course, there are a few outliers here! When it comes to teaching styles and grading, however, I have found that some teachers are not always consistent from grade-to-grade, especially in the history department. Overall, though, the teachers are what make St. John's.
The Lower School at SJS is a safe place for mostly wealthy children to feel like they are academically succeeding because of a lack of grades and very little academic challenge. Any meaningful academic differentiation has been removed from the curriculum and high achieving students are stuck waiting for their peers to catch up. Students with high test scores are often passed up in favor of big donor children and legacies. A handful of very bright and well-rounded children are admitted each year, and it doesn’t take long for these families to wonder why there is no academic rigor. The perception of SJS as a school of extreme academic challenge may be accurate for some classes in the Upper School, but the Lower School is actually less challenging than the HISD G/T curriculum. I speak from firsthand experience.
