Carl - Graduate

About
Carl joined St. John's School in Grade 8. He was attracted by the holistic approach to education that the IB programme offers; it provided Carl the opportunity to explore his passions and subjects independently & proved a perfect fit for his inquisitive personality. 

While at St. John's, Carl developed a love of Neuroscience. Recently, his hard work paid off when upon graduating, he was offered a position on one of the world's premier Neuroscience courses at Johns Hopkins University in the USA. 

In his own words 
"My time at St. John's school helped me grow as a person. When I joined in Grade 8 I was very shy, but as time went on, the school helped me develop a sense of intellectualism & confidence in my abilities. I chose to take the IB programme, because it provides a very comprehensive range of subjects. It gives me the freedom to choose what I want to learn

Athan - Middle Years Programme

About
Athan just completed Grade 7 at St. John's and will be moving into Grade 8 for the next school year. 
 
When he first joined St. John's, he was nervous about transferring from a public school but he stated that everyone from his teachers to his classmates embraced him and made him feel immediately comfortable. He thinks the learning is in-depth, but also fun, and the support systems in place provide him the tools to overcome any challenge. 
 
An active student by nature, Athan has especially benefited from the variety of athletic co-curricular activities available at St. John's and loves representing The Eagles across many of the different sports that are available at the school. 
 
In his parent's words 
"We were so impressed by Athan's progress at SJS that we enrolled our daughter there as well. In the past 3 years, we have witnessed Athan developing into a kind and well-balanced young gentleman. Additionally, St. John's COVID response was incredibly well planned and our children did not suffer from a decline in the quality of their education or social experiences."
