It's a good school overall. The environment is fairly clique-ish among the students but still friendly among different friend groups. There is a mix of good and bad teachers, like most places. I was lucky to have gotten really good teachers for my 4 years, but some of my friends weren't so fortunate. Sports events are fun, and the teams aren't terrible. However, if you're out for really competitive sports in the hopes of being recruited by top sports schools, this is not the place got you. The school is not terribly diverse. However, some the honors and AP classes are challenging and very helpful in preparing for a college workload.

I love this school! The classes are small and the teachers are always available to help and listen. I really like my classes and I am learning so much. We have lots of fun traditions and the teachers and faculty seem really happy to be part of St. John's and welcome new students.

This school is a very small, tight-knit community, and from what I hear it's getting even better. They now offer dual credit courses, which I wish were available when I was there, but I'm glad to hear they've added them. The class sizes are small and it's easy to get extra help if need be.

I loved the general feel of the school, the retreats we went on, and the clubs I joined. I enjoyed being a part of the Saint John's family, and I wouldn't go anywhere else if I could do it all again.
