Hi,
We are a family that is planning to move to St. John and wanted to know if any other families have moved there and are living there that could share their experience.
Our kids are 11 and 12. Any information is appreciated!
Thank you.

Hi I am a teacher on St. Thomas. I have been in education for 27 years...yes...kinda getting old...

But anyway, what are your plans for getting your children enrolled in school? Are you planning to do homeschooling? If you are, message me, please. I have some information you might find useful! Thanks

Thanks for your response!
I was not planning on homeschooling but I'm open for anything.
Please share any helpful info for an outsider.

Pia who is a contributor on the relocation forum might know.
Think her kids go to public school in STJ.
The public school there doesn't have a high school so kids have to travel to STT to attend high school.
Gift Hill may be able to offer some tuition relief if you qualify.
It's the only school on STJ that has grades 9-12 as well as the lower grades.

Post your inquiry on the relocation forum.
You'll get more responses.
Good luck.
