    Extracurriculars: Despite it being such a small school, Saint John's has many after school clubs to choose from. If the club doesn't exist you can create it.

    Overall Experience: 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.

    Teachers: The teachers at Saint John's really care about the students. Most of them go above and beyond, and they seem to enjoy what they do. They are always willing to help their students, and most every teacher is available for tutoring after school. The teachers are one of the best parts of Saint John's, and you will most likely at least know of every teacher by the time your senior year comes along whether it be because of a class, a retreat, or a school event.

    Overall Experience: I do not like how small the school is, I prefer larger schools, but the teachers, faculty and courses are fantastic.
