"SJK is more than a school and we continue to be amazed by the breadth of opportunities and experiences that are offered. The possibilities are endless, including academic, athletic, social, extracurricular, charitable and travel opportunities. SJK's dedicated faculty focus immeasurable time and effort on helping the students be the best they can be," say Karen H. & Philip K, current parents.
"Some of us who put on our SJK school tie never really took it off, even after graduation. Once imbued with the ethos of the school, we were never again content merely to do the minimum. Fair play, integrity, all the usual platitudes - these we carried to the four corners of the world, wherever we studied and worked. That is what SJK meant to us," says Paul Ling, SJK Class of 1987, Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
Grade 12 student Caroline G. says a passion for learning unites the school's 410 students. "There is a real sense of community here," says Caroline. "I feel like I can be myself and that my teachers and fellow students will support me in what I do. The learning environment here is really positive."
"The School has given our children so much! St. John's-Kilmarnock has helped them grow to be competent, well-rounded individuals leaders of tomorrow," says Anita F., current parent.
"Middle school at SJK is amazing. It's the perfect size - not too big and not too small. I have great friends who are fun, understanding and supportive and my teachers are excellent. SJK is an awesome school," says Mark Y., Grade 8.
"SJK has been a fantastic choice for our children. Their individual needs are being met in a focused and nurturing environment where strong academic programming is expertly balanced with extracurricular opportunities," say Heather and Regan Cox, current parents.
