Moving to St. John with Children

It’s so nice to be working with families with young children that are looking to move to St. John full time. For families, one of the first things we recommend is purchasing the book, ‘St. John off the Beaten Track.’ This book will get your family excited for the move, and will help you discover new adventures to make the move easier on your children if you are moving from far away. There are a ton of things to do on St. John and many summer activities for children to enjoy and learn. St John is a piece of paradise with so much to offer.

Choosing a School after Moving to St. John

The first logistical challenge you’ll face is finding the right school for your child. If you are looking for a Private School on St John, don’t miss the Gifft Hill School, educating children from PreSchool – 12th grade. The public school district spans St. John and St. Thomas, with 3 high schools, 1 middle school, 13 elementary schools, plus 2 alternative schools.

Moving to St John With Pets

Moving to St John with pets can be taxing on your animal, so you will want to make sure the process is as smooth as possible. If your pet is less than 25 pounds, they can probably travel with you in the cabin in a pet carrier. Pets over 25 pounds typically must travel in a climate controlled baggage space of the airplane.
