Welcome to John Rennie High School

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, du Loisir et du Sport (MELS) curriculum.

John Rennie offers one of the most diverse curriculum available at the secondary level. We have two computer labs connected via the school board's fiber optic network. We also have a robotics lab where students learn to program robots for competition. We offer a range of options that we challenge other schools to meet: 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.

Muscular Dystrophy Walk

This walk took place on Saturday, May 31, 2014. Time was from 10:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m.
The goal was to raise money for services and research to aid people who are affected by neuromuscular disease such as “Duchenne " Muscular Dystrophy which weakens the muscles. As the patient gets older, their strength fades.

My team, the “Duchenne Killers”, came in third for total raised; my team was able to raise $2410.00 in two short weeks! Our team consisted of 12 people. John Rennie was represented by Tammy Holland (Planning Room Tech) Mrs. Edwards (Special Education Technician) Gerald Godfrey (Aide) Dan O’Connor (Aide) as well as Bradley Heaven (Grade 10 student). We had a blast meeting new people and learning more about the disease. Everyone was beaming with pride.
