THE GLEANER’S PREP SCHOOL GUIDE 2018 | THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2018

T

HE ST John’s Preparatory

School is under the direc-

tion of the Diocese of

Jamaica and the Cayman

Islands. Founded on April 25,

1960, by Canon Lorry B

Harrison, the school is situated

on Shaw Park Road in St Ann,

overlooking the picturesque

Caribbean sea. It is the oldest

prep school in the region.

Students are admitted from

ages three-plus to 12 years old.

St John’s Preparatory School

has a trained staff with years

of service and experience, and

uses of the National Standards

Curriculum. Our vision is

demonstrated in the number

of active service clubs that

have gained regional and

national recognition in club-

related activities (K-Kids,

Wellness and Environment

Club, Brownies, Cub Scouts).

The school is high on

cultural awareness, and our

students are exposed to, and

perform exceptionally well in

music and dance. This has

earned us gold medals in the

Jamaica Cultural Development

Commission’s competitions.

At St John’s Preparatory

School, we are passionate about

sports. We have been the

defending champions of the

Jamaica Independent Schools

Association Western Champion-

ship for four of five years.

In the Grade Six Achievement

Test, we get exceptional passes to

the top high schools in Kingston

and St Andrew and St Ann.

St John’s Preparatory School

places great value on moral

and spiritual development.
