St. John's Celebrates Historic Family Retention!

In what is yet another differentiator for our school, an incredible 98.6% of the 500 current students eligible to return next year are doing just that! This level of success is extremely unusual for private schools, with 92% retention considered a solid achievement. Head of School, Hugh Jebson, reports, "This is a truly staggering but not surprising recognition of the unparalleled quality of the education St. John's provides families. To earn such powerful parental affirmation of what our faculty, staff, and administrators do every day to support each child is humbling and inspires all of us at school to be even better. It is also a deeply meaningful statement of trust families have in St. John's, and a reflection of our culture of thoughtful change and continuous improvement. St. John's keeps getting better and better, and I could not be more proud of everyone associated with this outstanding school."
