Financial assistance is available through our scholarship and bursary program.


The Our Kids review of St. John's-Ravenscourt School

our takeSJR was founded in 1820 principally to serve the children of the Selkirk settlers. By 1834 there were forty students, evenly split between boys and girls. The school has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though it’s success throughout has been unimpeachable. SJR has graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and the Queen granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as the school’s reputation. A strong academic program is paired with an equally strong attention to the values of stewardship, ethical leadership, and excellence in all areas of academic, social, and athletic life. A strategic plan to culminate in 2020, the school’s bi-centennial, is intended to further develop the school’s campus and programs; it's intended not as a revolution, says the head of school, Jim Keefe, but as the impetus for further evolution of what the school has been providing. The ideal student in one with sights set on post-secondary studies, and able to thrive in a challenging, expansive academic environment.  



Principal's Message

principal

Mr. Jim Keefe, Head of School

St John’s-Ravenscourt (SJR) is an independent co-educational Kindergarten to Grade 12 university-preparatory day and boarding school that offers an outstanding all-round education for talented boys and girls. We are fiercely proud of our rich heritage and combine our long traditions with the best of 21st Century learning to enable our students to thrive in this quickly changing world, not only during their school days but at university and beyond.

Our School community is built around the four pillars of academic excellence, creative expression, active healthy living and social responsibility. We have extremely high expectations of our students, in terms of their academic commitment and co-curricular attainment as well as their personal qualities of compassion, integrity and service. I am very proud to lead a School of such fundamental strength, clear mission and exhilarating possibilities.

SJR has rightly earned an enviable reputation for ensuring that our students rise to the challenge and fulfil their academic potential. Our talented faculty has forged a strong tradition for educational innovation and for creating a vibrant learning environment that nurtures students and helps them grow into well-rounded adults. There is also, of course, our tremendous raft of co-curricular opportunities that develop leadership, self-belief and character.

Situated on the banks of the Red River in Winnipeg, SJR boasts a wonderful campus and some of the very best facilities of any independent school in Canada and beyond.

The best way to appreciate our warm and purposeful atmosphere and strong sense of community is to make a personal visit. Come and meet me and my colleagues and talk with our splendid students. In the meantime, this website provides a wealth of information about life at SJR, and I hope it captures your imagination.


Academics


Curriculum Liberal Arts, Reggio Emilia

Primary Curriculum: Liberal Arts

Secondary Curriculum: Reggio Emilia

Reggio Emilia emphasizes the role of the child in directing their own learning. Heavily intertwined with progressive ideals in education, the program espouses ideas such as child-centred classrooms, discovery learning, and 21st century education.
If you want to learn more about Reggio Emilia education, check out our comprehensive guide.


What SJR says: Junior School (K - Grade 5) follows the Reggio Emelia curriculum and the Middle and Senior Schools follow a balanced approach to learning.

  • Approach:
    Focus
    Academic


  • Pedagogies and subject courses:

  • Mathematics Equal Balance

      These math programs feature an equal balance of “Traditional” and “Discovery” methods.
      Learn about the different mathematics approaches  


    • What SJR says: The mathematics courses at SJR cover the content of the corresponding provincial courses, but include additional material and cover most topics in greater depth. We have three clearly held objectives: 1) Students should have a thorough mastery of basic skills. This is considered essential for success in higher mathematics and mathematics related courses. 2) Students should have an excellent understanding of ideas and concepts. It is important that they understand how various ideas are interrelated, and that they develop an intuitive feeling for the concepts that are being used. Memorizing how to solve a vast collection of “type problems” is not enough. 3) Students should be able to apply their skills and concepts to solve problems that they have not seen before. There is a strong emphasis on problem-solving at all levels, and there are a variety of mathematics competitions that all students can participate in each year.

    • Textbooks and supplementary materials: Grade 10: Foundations and Pre-calculus Mathematics 10 Grade 11: Pearson Pre-calculus 11 Student Edition - myWorkText Grade 12: Pearson Pre-calculus 12 Student Edition - myWorkText

    • Calculator policy: Students in Grades 9 through 12 require a scientific calculator for their Mathematics courses. Students in Grades 11 and 12 are encouraged to use a graphing calculator (a must for those taking AP courses) and the TI-84 Plus graphing calculator is preferred.


    Early Reading Balanced Literacy

      Balanced reading programs are typically Whole Language programs with supplementary phonics training. This training might be incidental, or it might take the form of mini-lessons.
      Learn about the different early reading approaches  


    • What SJR says: Language Arts instruction at St. John’s-Ravenscourt’s Junior School assists students to become adept, confident, fluent and creative communicators, who appreciate the power, usefulness and beauty of language. It is fundamentally important for students to become confident users of language and versatile thinkers, both in school and out.

    • DIBELS Testing: This school does not use DIBELS testing to assess reading progress.

    • What SJR says: This information is not currently available.


    Writing Equal balance

      Programs that balance systematic and process approaches equally likely have an emphasis on giving young students ample opportunities to write, while providing supplementary class-wide instruction in grammar, parts of sentences, and various writing strategies.
      Learn about the different writing approaches  


    • What SJR says: As students progress through school, their instruction increasingly enables them to acquire as many language conventions as possible. This acquisition cannot be left to time and chance. Given the interrelationships among the language arts, there is a need for fully integrated instruction characterized by coherence and continuity.


    Science Inquiry

      Inquiry-based science emphasizes teaching science as a way of thinking or practice, and therefore tries to get students “doing” science as much as possible -- and not just “learning” it. Students still learn foundational scientific ideas and content (and build on this knowledge progressively); however, relative to expository science instruction, inquiry-based programs have students spend more time developing and executing their own experiments (empirical and theoretical). Students are frequently challenged to develop critical and scientific-thinking skills by developing their own well-reasoned hypothesis and finding ways to test those hypotheses. Projects and experiments are emphasized over textbook learning. Skills are emphasized over breadth of knowledge.
      Learn about the different science approaches  


    • Teaching approach: Emphasis is on understanding concepts and applying these in many different situations. For each topic, students begin with simple problems, move on to more complicated ones that involve several topics and finally they are expected to solve problems involving previously unseen situations.

    • Topics covered in curriculum:

      Subject = offered
      Biology
      Chemistry
      Ecology
      Geology
      Meteorology
      Physics
      Physiology
      Zoology
    • Treatment of evolution:

      Evolution as consensus theory
      Evolution as one of many equally viable theories
      Evolution is not taught

    Literature Equal Balance

      These literature programs draw in equal measure from “Traditional” and “Social Justice” programs.
      Learn about the different literature approaches  


    • What SJR says: The goal of the English program is to produce graduates who can speak and listen effectively, analyze literature with sophistication, write with forcefulness and precision, read with comprehension and insight and apply their skills with creativity. To these ends, a sequential program—focused on language and literature—has been devised to challenge students of English on a variety of levels


    Social Studies Expanding Communities

      The Expanding Communities approach organizes the curriculum around students’ present, everyday experience. In the younger grades, students might learn about themselves, for example. As they move through the grades, the focus gradually broadens in scope: to the family, neighbourhood, city, province, country, and globe. The curriculum tends to have less focus on history than Core Knowledge programs.
      Learn about the different social studies approaches  


    • What SJR says: The core concept of citizenship provides a focus for Social Studies learning across all grades. This section addresses various aspects of citizenship: - Role of Citizenship in Social Studies - Rationale for Citizenship Education - Active Democratic Citizenship in Canada - Canadian Citizenship for the Future - Citizenship in the Global Context - Environmental Citizenship


    Humanities and Social Sciences Equal Balance

      These programs represent an equal balance between the perennialist and pragmatic approach to teaching the humanities and social sciences.
      Learn about the different humanities and social sciences approaches  


    • What SJR says: The social studies program is an integral component of the SJR curriculum. Through the two key disciplines of history and geography, students are encouraged to become critically aware and prepared to take an active role in confronting the challenges of the future.


    Foreign Languages Equal Balance

      These programs feature an equal blend of the audio-lingual and communicative styles of language instruction.
      Learn about the different foreign languages approaches  


    • What SJR says: The study of French and Spanish, as of any other second languages, can play an important role in the development of cross-cultural understanding. One of the main goals of the Language Department has been to foster an acquisition of knowledge and an appreciation of both French and Spanish language and culture.

    • Studying a foreign language is required until:   9
    • Languages Offered: • French • Spanish • ESL


    Fine Arts Equal Balance

      These programs have an equal emphasis on receptive and creative learning.
      Learn about the different fine arts approaches  


    • Program offers:

      Subject = offered
      Acting
      Dance
      Drama/Theatre
      Graphic Design
      Music
      Visual Arts
    • Visual studio philosophy:

      Expressive
      Disciplined
    • What SJR says: Art is visual communication. Through their study of this unique language, our students learn not only to discover and develop their own creative expression and problem solving skills, but also to better understand the complex visual world in which we live. Studying the visual arts encompasses many different aspects of learning.


    Computers and Technology Medium integration

      Effort is made to integrate the development of digital literacy through the curriculum. However, this is not a dominant focus.
      Learn about the different computers and technology approaches  


    • What SJR says: Our students will need to assume an active and productive role in the Information Age of the 21st century. To do so successfully they must become knowledgeable about, and comfortable with, computing devices and related information technologies.

    • Program covers:

      Subject = offered
      Computer science
      Robotics
      Web design

    Physical Education
    • What SJR says: The vision of the program is to have all SJR students living physically active and healthy lifestyles. The program will emphasize physical, emotional and mental well-being, as well as life-long fitness.


    Religious Education

    Sex and Health Education
    Topics covered in sex and health education: This information is not currently available.

    What SJR says: This information is not currently available.

    Approach:
    Mostly value-neutral

    By and large, we teach sex education free of any particular moral or ethical standpoint. We try not to impose any particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) on our students when teaching sex and related issues.


    Fairly value-based

    Sex education is sometimes taught from a particular moral or ethical standpoint. Sometimes particular values or value systems (such as social, political, or ideological values) are invoked when teaching sex and related issues.

    Traditional

    This includes a range of positions. A traditional approach might, for example, go as far as emphasizing the nuclear family and complete abstinence from sex before marriage. Alternatively, this approach might simply involve placing less emphasis on sex outside of the context of marriage and more emphasis on abstinence. Or finally, it might just involve focusing less on sex outside of the context of marriage.

    Progressive

    This might mean more emphasis is placed on the importance of such things as social equality, diversity, and choice in sex education.


    What SJR says: Issues such as mental, physical, social and occupational health will be discussed so that students will develop the knowledge necessary to make responsible health decisions.



    Preschool/K Curriculum Reggio Emilia

    • Play-based
    • Montessori
    • Waldorf
    • Reggio Emilia
    • Academic

    Reggio Emilia programs aim to develop curiosity and problem-solving skills through the liberal use of “projects”, (as opposed to “activities” or “lessons”). Teachers design projects for children around their demonstrated interests. Projects can be geared to an individual student, a small group of students, or the class as a whole. Projects can last from a few days to the whole year. Art is strongly emphasized and is typically incorporated into every project. Teachers actively participate in projects alongside students, rather than sitting back and observing. A high degree of parent involvement is also encouraged, particularly when forming curriculums and project plans (which happens throughout the academic year).
    If you want to learn more about Reggio Emilia education, check out our comprehensive guide.

    If you want to learn more about preschool education, check out our comprehensive guide. You can also read our in-depth answers to important preschool questions: What is preschool? What are the main preschool programs? What are the main pros and cons of preschool? What do children learn in preschool? How much does preschool cost?  What makes for a great preschool?

    What SJR says: The core values in this approach are: - The child is an active participant in learning and is a capable and resourceful learner. - The indoor and outdoor environments are utilized as the “third educator” along with the student and the teacher. - The teacher, parent, and child work together as collaborators in the process of learning. - Making learning visible and documenting students’ learning as it occurs helps to provide key insights into the children’s thought processes.


    Curriculum Pace Accelerated

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    The main curriculum accelerates beyond the pace of the provincial one; ALL students do the work of OLDER public-school peers in tangible and measurable ways. This accelerated pace is maintained by the teachers and school, (through textbook selection, topic selection, grading, assignment standards and expectations, etc).

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What SJR says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.


    Academic Culture Rigorous

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “rigorous” academic culture places a high value on academic performance, and expects their students to do the same. This does not mean the school is uncaring, unsupportive, or non-responsive -- far from it. A school can have a rigorous academic culture and still provide excellent individual support. It does mean, however, the school places a particular emphasis on performance -- seeking the best students and challenging them to the fullest extent -- relative to a normal baseline. High expectations and standards – and a challenging yet rewarding curriculum – are the common themes here. Keep in mind this classification is more relevant for the older grades: few Kindergarten classrooms, for example, would be called “rigorous”.

    What SJR says: This information is not currently available.


    Developmental Priorities Intellectual, Balanced

    Primary Developmental Priority: Intellectual
    Academically strong, creative, and critical thinkers, capable of exercising rationality, apprehending truth, and making aesthetic distinctions.

    Secondary Developmental Priority: Balanced
    Equal attention is paid to a balance of priorities: intellectual, emotional, social, and physical.

    What SJR says: This information is not currently available.


    Special Needs Support Mild difficulties

    Mild difficulties

    SJR can provide support for mild disablities. SJR does NOT provide specialized support for moderate-to-severe learning disabilities, developmental disabililties, behavioural/emotional disorders, or physical disabilities.

    • Academic Support:
      Support Type = offered
      Learning strategy and study counselling; habit formation
      Extra support and minor accommodations for children experiencing subclinical difficulties
    • Mild but clinically diagnosed ADHD
      Support Type = offered
      Accommodations
      Modifications
      Extra support

    Gifted Learner Support Accelerated curriculum

    Accelerated curriculum

    Crouch, Touch, Pause, Engage (It's a rugby thing)

    Congratulations to the SJR Girls' Varsity Rugby team who won the Division City Championship last Thursday, May 28, 2015.

    In their first season in 15-a-side rugby the girls prevailed after three games in four days to win the City Championship. What we lacked in size, we made up for it with huge hearts and desire to win.

    Team members included girls from Grade 9-12. Our combination of experienced players and keen rookies turned into a winning formula. Mr. Campbell stated "this is the most dedicated group of athletes we have ever fielded for Girls Rugby".

    Way to go!
