Expanding Preparation for the Future

Grades 5-8

The St. John’s Middle Division experience represents the final four years of spiritual and intellectual preparation before matriculating to high school.  With this in mind, the faculty is dedicated to providing a superior academic experience in conjunction with character building and guidance for navigating adolescent development.

Lisa Strauch, Head of Middle Division

After mastering the essential academic skills in the Lower Division, students advance to Middle Division and explore subject areas in greater depth, develop time management and organizational skills, and explore new interests. 

Both our children attend St. John’s, and we absolutely love the school. It has been a fantastic experience for us and especially our children. They are happy and eager to go to school every day. At the same time, the academic preparation for high school and beyond is unmatched anywhere in Tampa. It combines a truly nurturing environment with academic rigor in a way that one would think would not be possible.
