    "We just moved our children to St.John's this year from a public elementary and we are absolutely amazed at the difference in how it is ran and the quality of the teaching compared to their old school. The teacher's work hard to teach the children academics and Christian values. They also are great role models as they not only teach but live out their faith through their daily lives and volunteer work at the school. The attitude of all of the teachers and administration is "can do" and they work hard to accommodate parent's requests. What I love the most abut this school is the atmosphere. When you walk in you can just feel the Holy Spirit at work at St.John's. Since starting there my children are no longer anxious about overbearing teachers or bullies. The environment is very loving but strict, which is exactly what we were looking for. I also love that they have recess everyday and a half hour lunch period (both of which are missing now from most public schools). Most importantly, when I drop my children off at St. John's every morning, I leave with the peace of mind knowing that they are amongst compassionate Christian leaders who will teach and guide them well while I am away."

    "The differeniated instruction is excellent. Children, regardless of grade level, are motivated to do their best and challenged to their strengths. Class size is small enough to assure each child has their individual needs met. The principal has a committment to keep the class sizes to under 22, with a promise to higher additional teachers if enrollment for a grade goes above 22. In nearby public districts facing severe budget issues and suggesting classroom sizes in excess of 28 this is a serious plus for St. John. Children get extracurriculars like sports, music, and cheerleading. Fundraising is kept to a minimum and seems like less than the public school my child came from. They have plenty of the latest technology to stay progressive but at the same time they focus on making sure the kids know the bsics through a solid grounded education. Their character development is not a separate program, it is peppered throughout the curriculum and based on biblical teachings, but it is not overemphasized. The tuition is OK for what you get. It could be a little lower for Lutherans without a church school but still a great value."

    "Based on its student performance on standardized tests, St. John is the highest ranked school in the entire county (compared to all other schools including public schools). My daughter and many of her classmates have gone on to highly regarded private and parochial high schools winning academic achievement scholarships. I credit the inventiveness and dedication of their teachers at St. John. You owe it to your child to visit St. John Scool."

    "Students do very well on standardized tests, and a high number of them are very successful in high school and beyond. St. John has the reputation of being a little more difficult than the other area Lutheran schools. There is very low teacher turnover, and full-time teachers are synodically trained to teach the Bible. Sometimes the teachers are old-fashioned, but that means lots of reading and very little calculator use, which can be good for a child's developing abstract thinking capacity."
