A letter from our staff

We are honored that you are exploring St. John’s Lutheran School as a potential school for your child and family. The decision about how to best support your child’s education is one of the most important a parent can make. We hope learning more about us helps you decide whether our school is the right fit for you.

We highly value our school community and care about supporting the foundation of your child’s education. We share responsibility for each and every child. We believe that everyone plays a role in safeguarding and supporting the development of all children in our school. We are committed learners who believe that everyone has something to learn and to give as a loved and precious child of God. We strive to treat each other with compassion and respect as Christ does to us, while also creating an environment where your child can feel safe and accepted. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions about our school or our mission to try and make sense of the world we live in.

St. John’s – it just makes sense.

Blessings,
Teachers + Staff at St. John’s Lutheran School, NYA.

My grandsons attend St. John's and I'm very impressed with the level of learning and individual attention they are given. The teachers I've met have all been compassionate and caring people.
