Dr. Runge's children went to St. John's, and she truly attributes her children's success to their time here. She says that St. John's set a solid foundation for them, gave them a sense of community, and makes learning fun.
Mrs. Donohue's son went to St. John's, and was a transfer from public school in the third grade. She tells of how he thrived here and is now a successful middle schooler thanks to the safe environment, and caring staff.
St. John's alum Wyatt from the class of 2014 tells of how he felt very prepared for middle school. 

"One of my former students, Karleen, who is attending Glenelg Country Day School is doing exceptionally well there! Her Mom told me that she has been on their high honor’s list since she got there and has been involved with sports every season too!  The best part of Karleen’s journey at St. John’s is that her parents trusted us implicitly and partnered with us to help her shine brightly along the way.

-- Mrs. Hardon, “Former” Parent, Current Staff Member

"We love St. John's Parish Day School! We've been a part of the SJPDS Family for 5 years now. Our daughter started in the transitional kindergarten program and our son in the 3s program. They are now in the 4th and 2nd grade and are truly thriving. The teachers and specialists at SJPDS are top quality and are always eager to find new and challenging ways to engage our children. If you are looking for a supportive community to teach and nurture your children, look no further!"

-- Dr. Stangl, Current Parent, Annual Fund Committee Chair

"My son has been attending SJPDS since Kindergarten and currently in 5th grade. He absolutely loves it and wishes there was a Middle school! We've seen him grow and thrive over the years at SJPDS. He's challenged to help him reach his potential. The small class sizes really allow the Teachers to get to know each child and work closely work with them. I would highly recommend the school."

-- Mrs Majano, Current Parent

"I am part of the second graduating class at St.John's and I can very much say that St.John's has helped morph who I am as a young adult. Even after graduation, I still attend church here, as well as being an employee in the aftercare program. All of the faculty and staff are warm and inviting, and truly there to nurture your child's learning experience. This is by a long run one of the best private elementary education institutions in Maryland."

--Miss Richardson, St. John’s Alum

“I love the fact that not only is my daughter getting an awesome education but she is learning how to be the best person she can be and a leader to the community. This school knows how to build leaders and children who will impact the world.”


--- Nancy Hulsman, Current Parent

"From the moment the St. John's students opened the door for us at Open House, we knew we had made the right choice. The kindness, love, and thirst for knowledge extending throughout the hallways is extraordinary. Our children have been given an incredible foundation for their future that coincides with our fundamental beliefs for them to lead happy and successful lives."

--- Jillian Tullock, Current Parent

"My oldest is about to graduate from high school now.  Thanks to St. John's he was reading at age 4 and off to a great start. He's now going to play baseball on scholarship at Wilmington University."
