There are a variety of programs at John Rennie as we strive to meet the range of requests from our community.
Cycle One - Secondary I and II
John Rennie offers the younger students a school within a school atmosphere. Grade 7 and 8 students are situated in their own area of the building for most academic classes. The students have their own administrative area with a vice-principal and secretary assigned to Cycle one responsibilities.
Cycle One is committed to a team approach, which enables us to limit the number of teachers working with your child. In this way, we are able to ensure that your child is well known by a smaller group of teachers who can readily identify and personalize responses to their concerns.
