Aavo Kokk

”I have followed the development of St John’s School with joy as it is a place with a unique spirit and values which are important both for children as well as for parents. If I were a child, I would be happy to study at a school like this.”
Arvo Pärt, composer and grandparent

“My two sons, Artur and Karl, go to St. John’s not only for its Christian background, but because we share the school’s values, its warm-hearted attitude towards the world and its will to raise independent personalities. And if a 13-year-old boy says that his school is the best, then that’s what it is!”
Reet Aus, sustainable fashion designer and parentreetaus

”I appreciate the community spirit of the school as this is how we strengthen civil society. St John’s School is unique since, among other things, the school management gives opportunities to parents to organize events and participate in the teaching process.” 
Aavo Kokk, entrepreneur and parent


”It is really interesting to see how ancient wisdom coincides with the conclusions of the latest research about human development. When we hear what neuroscientists say about what is important for a child’s progress, we can see that this is exactly how things work at St John’s School.”

Kristi Klaasmägi, educational expert and parent
