Schedule Change Information

Message from the Headmaster

Dear St. John's Community,

We are excited about the adaptation of our new school day schedule and feel strongly that it will enhance both individual and group learning while supporting our commitment to developing the whole child and K-12 community. The rotation dates for the 2016-2017 school year, as well as the divisional rotation calendars, can be accessed via the red buttons on the right.

I encourage you to read the articles posted in the “Research” section of this page. They will provide insight from other institutions who have implemented many of the same goals and objectives - for both teaching and learning - that we hope to achieve through the new school schedule. If you were unable to attend one of the divisional presentations this past spring, please access the recordings of them through the “More Information” section. They offer additional commentary into the philosophical discussions that have ensued over the past two years.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, Megan Henry, or any of our division heads if you have any questions about the decisions made and the changes to the format of the school year. 


Sincerely,

Mark Desjardins
Headmaster
