Correspondance du ministre de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur -
Lettre aux parents
Our high school opened in 1955 and was named in memory of the Honourable John Rennie, member of the Legislative Assembly. Mr. Rennie was instrumental in persuading the government of Premier Duplessis to provide the funds to build a badly needed school in Pointe Claire. Families of the era were forced to send their youngsters as far away as Montreal West in order to pursue secondary studies. John Rennie has grown a great deal since those days of the basic Ministère de l'Éducation et Enseignement supérieur (MEES) curriculum.
John Rennie offers one of the most diverse curriculum available at the secondary level. We have two computer labs and a robotics lab where students learn to program robots for competition. We offer a range of options including: Pottery, Drama, Actors' Studio, Journalism, Spanish, Debating, Photography, World History, Music (concert and jazz band), Law, Psychology, Computer Applications, Architectural Technology, Advanced Physical Education, enriched Science electives, and Leadership. Our timetable is constructed to provide the students opportunities to enjoy a variety of options, while still pursuing a specific interest such as music.
