Our son was on the verge of being kicked out of our home. He was not applying himself in school GPA of less than 1, drugs, disrespect for himself and his family. He went to St Johns in 2003 his sophomore year. The staff care, but don’t baby them. He was 17 and needed to understand he can take control of his life. He did, he rose to the challenge and he found his strengths. He did not chose college, but he is in the Army doing what he wanted and is striving to be an Army Ranger, that his been his dream since he was young. SJMS gave him confidence and they share their faith which is important to our family. I would encourage people to investigate this school for their sons, it was one of the best decisions we made.
I would recommend St. Johns to any parents. My son would have never graduated from high school had it not been for them. They are such a great school that I just can not say enough about them. They also taught my son how to be a man along with a very good education. I am forever in their debt for all they did for my son!
My son has struggled in school since the 3rd grade. While we worked with him daily, hired tutors, but nothing seemed to help. He just didn’t care about school and accepted failure as part of his life. He has been at St. John’s for 2 years and he has turned his life around. He went from consistently failing to a 3.2 GPA. He will be beginning his junior year in August after completing Leadership Camp. His self esteem, confidence and overall demeanor has vastly improved. We have the teachers, military staff and leadership at the school to thank. They saved my son.
I am convinced SJMS saved my son. The school’s supportive staff exemplifies leadership, responsibility, and integrity. It is truly a caring community!
