St John's Academy Reviews
parent teacher involvement minimal
Its hard to work with teacher and admin, little availability and seems sometimes they think they know the child better than the parent. If they could just take the ego down a nontch maybe some productivity and betterment for the kids could happen.
Excellent Academics and Respectful Students
My family has been involved with St. John's Academy for over 10 years and we can't say enough good things about the teachers and administration. The students are challenged academically daily, and yes, they do have homework, but I have been so happy with the growth they make each year and it shows on their testing.
The only teacher turnover they have had in the past few years is because of retirement. Their young teachers are very good and their veterans are awesome! In regards to field trips, the sixth graders take a two day mission trip to Minneapolis each spring with stops at Sharing and Caring Hands and Feed My Starving Children. They donate many items and help fill bags of food at Feed My Starting Children. They also visit the Science and Art Museums. The other grades take field trips the last two weeks of school, so the person below didn't have the correct facts.
Take time to visit with the school. You'll find everyone to be very friendly and very willing to go the extra mile.
joke-save your money
[Content removed by Education.com staff] This school was great in the past but now there is teacher turnover, lack of community feel and its just all about who has money. There are too many class trips and extra activity, lack of focus on academics. Its sad.
The teachers and administration are excellent. St. John's Academy provided a wonderful education for our boys and we will be forever grateful. In our opinion, sending our boys here was the best investment we could make for their futures.
Great education and a strong moral foundation
We couldn't be happier with St. John's Acedemy. It is preparing our kids acedemically, socially, and religiously. The principal is the best in town. He is kind, fair, and approachable for the kids and parents. The comment below could be a parent that thinks their kid never does any wrong, and I would take it with a grain of salt. The homework is more than the public schools in town send home, but I feel good about it. While it is the teacher's primary responsibility to teach our children, I also feel it is the parent's job to ensure they are thoroughly prepared for life. The tuition is a lot less than daycare and worth every penny!
Our family was very unhappy there. My child was bullied, our family was treated poorly by Administration and in my opinion the teachers were not adequet. Lots of homework coming home even though they went on a lot of fun trips and had guest speakers. Seems to be that the real academic work was up to the parents. Not sure what we were paying for to be honest.
