St. John, the son of Zebedee and the brother of St. James the great, was called to be an Apostle by Our Lord in the first year of His public ministry. He lived in the first century AD. He was one of the Twelve disciples of Jesus and also called lovingly as ‘the beloved disciple’.
St. John is called the ‘Apostle of Charity,’ a virtue he had learnt from his Master Jesus, which was constantly inculcated by word and example. He inspires by his life that each Johnian should be a flame of love and a glove of wisdom. He also invites each Johnian to be intellectually competent, professionally skilled, spiritually evolved, morally upright, socially responsive and culturally integrated in the world.

Our School Motto

Curriculum of St. John’s, on the one hand imparts updated vistas of knowledge with all its scientific temper and on the other, addresses to the latent goodness in the children to love and to serve the underprivileged. Therefore, fostering of ‘Love and Wisdom’ becomes the substratum of all Curricular and Co-curricular syllabi of the school. As a means to translate our vision, St. John’s believes in co-education from kindergarten onwards.
