30 Middle School students were inducted this morning into the St. Johns chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.
The St. Johns academic program cultivates real learning, not rote memorization or busy work. Students go beyond mastering a body of knowledge in varied disciplines and learn to apply that knowledge. They make connections across subjects and to the real world. And they develop the skills—critical thinking, writing, collaboration, and emotional intelligence — that help them become productive citizens in a world they will help shape.
