pre-k through eighth grade co-educational school in East Dallas

Our Approach

The Love of Knowledge. The Courage to Use it.

Your child’s formative elementary and middle school years will set the academic, physical, and moral foundation for the rest of your child’s life. At St. John’s, all our expertise and commitment is focused on developing a extraordinary foundation for each student.

Carefully Orchestrated Growth

Our carefully orchestrated curriculum integrates the right combination of academic challenge and guidance at each grade level as students progress from subject to subject and year to year. Our lively learning environment also allows children to be children. We cherish their innocence and eagerness to learn and organize all aspects of their education around what’s best for them.

At St. John’s, academic strength is just the beginning. Our students are not only taught to embrace and celebrate learning as a joyous, lifelong pursuit, but to proudly and courageously apply what they know, across all aspects of their lives. Our expertise in pre-k through eighth grade development means that every child experiences opportunities to stretch not only academically but also through leadership, service, athletics, and the arts.

At St. John’s, middle school is a special time. Our students eagerly take on more responsibility because they see themselves as leaders and role models for the younger students. Academically, they are ready for more complex thinking, planning, and executing. Yet they develop at different paces physically and socially. No matter where they are, our middle schoolers benefit from more time in an accepting and safe environment. They need time, with loving guidance, to develop their own moral compass and independent decision-making before high school.

The Most Important Investment You’ll Make

When children love to learn throughout life, they will thrive in an unpredictable world. Students leave St. John’s well-rounded, articulate, resilient, and morally responsible individuals. They have the courage to think independently, critically, and creatively. They graduate prepared, confident, and with the conviction needed to navigate the complex path through high school, college, and beyond.

Now is the time to invest in your child, and St. John’s is the place.

At St. John's kids can be kids

Students feel secure in St. John's accepting environment. They feel free to be who they want without fear of judgement. During Culture Fest, students ranging from the ages of four to 15 embraced the experience with joy and laughter - the joy of learning.
