Head of School Welcome


Welcome to St. John’s Episcopal School,

More than 60 years ago St. John’s began as a small, parish school nestled in the hills of one of Dallas’ premier outdoor destinations, White Rock Lake. Today, we are a vibrant, independent, Episcopal school serving families from multiple ZIP codes, and our innovative instruction extends beyond our backyard of White Rock Lake and into the greater Dallas area.  

Here, we seek an education for our students that includes achievement and struggle, curiosity and courageous conversations, and the unparalleled expression of joy and wonderment. We help our students dream, and we encourage them to take risks, to adapt and find comfort, even in uncomfortable spaces. We develop mindful leaders and engaged young citizens by challenging students to tap into the critical-thinking skills acquired in the classroom and practice them through our award-winning service-learning program. As a community, we celebrate students who take risks for growth in academics, service, arts and athletics, regardless of the outcome. 

We strive to nurture children. The practice of meeting them where they are has been a hallmark of a St. John’s education since its inception. Our students are known and celebrated by our faculty and staff, and that sense of belonging preserves a legacy of friendship, commitment and gratitude expressed by our alumni. 

Parents also find a home in St. John’s. We value parent partnerships and are grateful for the support of our parent community through their volunteer leadership and active participation. Many continue their connection to the school and St. John’s friends long after their children move on to high school and college.

We encourage you to learn more about our mission, call to action, and ultimately, the transformative experiences families encounter in our community.

We are St. John’s, and we look forward to meeting you,

Warm Regards,

Meshea Matthews
Head of School
