Our School

John McCrae SS

We acknowledge that our learning is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory. We thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us and recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Our School

John McCrae Secondary School is a comprehensive community school dedicated to meeting the needs of all learners according to their individuality. We provide students with an established safe environment in a modern facility. Large spacious classrooms, modern computer labs, updated technology shops, art studios and open science laboratories provide students with an excellent environment in which to develop skills and interests. Additional facilities are provided by our community partnership with the adjacent Walter Baker Centre. Students at J.M. utilize the resources of the public library and have access to the sports facilities housed in this area. Academic classes benefit a great deal from these extended resources while physical education classes and teams are able to participate in activities not normally available in secondary schools (aquatics, hockey, squash, fitness facilities, to name a few). John McCrae is an all-encompassing caring school nurturing the educational, emotional and social growth of all its students. “We Care!”

Our Students

Our goal is to provide every student with a supportive, challenging academic and formative program in which to grow to their full potential. Students who graduate from John McCrae will have both the academic and moral character to contribute constructively to the world in which they will live. A JMSS graduate:

  • is a creative problem solver.
  • is a responsible, accountable citizen.
  • makes wise personal decisions.
  • makes effective use of personal management skills in a variety of settings.
  • is an able communicator.
  • displays the values and skill that promotes success.

The staff at John McCrae is committed to providing a quality education to every student according to their need. A highly educated group of individuals have modelled themselves into developmental program teams to provide academic excellence in all facets of the curriculum. Integration, and differentiation are the norm at J.M. and all students are treated with dignity and respect. Extra help and remediation are provided by classroom teachers and when necessary by our Student Success Teacher Initiative so that no student is left behind. The journey to success is the responsibility of all staff at J.M. and we accept the challenges that creates “Our School, Our Students, Our Responsibility”.
