Rosthern Junior College High School

"The culture of RJC is very accepting."

Karen Linsley - Parent   (May 17, 2022)

Coming from a city school to a school with large classes our daughter has benefitted from the smaller classes sizes and access to teachers and resources outside of class time. Our daughter speaks highly of the creative learning experiences that have been provided at RJC. She appreciates the support and effort that each of the teachers provide. We have loved the diverse classes that are offered. Our daughter has very much enjoyed the music and sports program. The level of professionalism and ... View full review

"The small classroom sizes ensure more teacher-student attention so every student can get the help they need to succeed."

Sanne Gillingham - Parent   (May 04, 2022)

Our daughter transferred from the local high school to RJC High School for her grade 11 and 12 year. We had initially wanted her to make the move earlier and begin her RJC High School experience in grade 10, but she was hesitant to leave behind her friends and the familiarity of her previous school. After her grade 10 year, she felt ready to embrace the new experiences and challenges that comes with starting a new school and her only regret is not moving sooner! RJC High School focuses on the ... View full review

"Learning to live in the community has been the biggest impact on their social development and maturity outside of high school."

Melanie Boldt - Parent   (Jun 22, 2020)

Both our sons attended RJC for high school. Our firs child was not sure that this was a good idea. We said he could try it and if he didn't like it, he could go back to his old school. Three weeks in, he was staying and wanted to move into the dorms, which he did. Their best experiences center around the dorm community, athletics, travel, and service. Learning to live in the community has been the biggest impact on their social development and maturity outside of high school. Now out of high sch... View full review

"Our daughter was able to participate in the first year of the new curriculum program, Imagine, that utilizes experienced based learning, with regular and frequent out of classroom activities to augment the traditional classroom based learning."

David Weiler-Thiessen - Parent   (Nov 19, 2019)

Our son and daughter both enjoyed the opportunity for authentic interactions with teachers and other students at Rosthern Junior College. Our son benefited from the social interactions with other students through after-school informal activities from living in a dormitory setting. Our daughter, who is more social by nature, thrived at the school, both academically and by being able to participate in sports teams, choirs, school musicals, and student newspaper. Both of our children credit Rosth... View full review

"Authenticity in who you truly are- shared on the application for admissions is extremely important."

Tammy Forrester - Alumnus   (Nov 19, 2019)

Rosthern Junior College was the perfect stepping stone to independent thinking into adulthood. It’s a unique blend of academic education coupled with independent living under the guidance and rules set out by the school which prepared me for my future. I was left to my own devices to manage my time, my finances, my relationships and my education while being supported by the caring and watchful eye of a group of staff members that truly loved me. My parents were progressive thinkers in giving m... View full review

"These teachers want the kids to succeed in academics and in their life. They lead by example."

Nicole Arnold - Parent   (May 28, 2019)

Rosthern Junior College was the perfect school for our son to attend to stretch his wings and learn to fly. He was able to live in the dorms, away from home in a safe, small town environment. He learned and applied the skills of living independently before heading to a post secondary College. I believe that attending Rosthern Junior College made that transition significantly easier. The students have a lot of fun and build a lot of friendships in the dorms. They also learn to manage their time w... View full review

"The student body was welcoming, friendly and sincere. All students were driven and filled with hopes and dreams for a better future for themselves and society."

Emma Greenwald - Alumnus   (Oct 03, 2018)

RJC creates an environment of community. I felt like I belonged there. Everyone was friends. The class schedule is set up in a way that allows for time at the end of the day to study, do homework or ask your teachers for help. This was a bonus for me. There is many events through out the year, that help you get to know each other and have a little fun. There is a couple of events that get you out in the community and volunteering. They have an AlSO trip where you travel, and volunteer in a diffe... View full review

"Upon graduation, I became part of a bigger community of alumni that shares the same experiences, fantastic memories, and gives us a foot in the door for opportunities later in life. "

Patrick Laughlin - Alumnus   (Oct 02, 2018)

RJC gave me opportunities that no other school can offer. Not only did we learn in class, we learned life skills in the dorms, made connections with people from over the world. Upon graduation, I became part of a bigger community of alumni that shares the same experiences, fantastic memories, and gives us a foot in the door for opportunities later in life. Alumni are very supportive of freshly graduated students. I have seen alumni give graduates advance notice of places to rent in Saskatoo... View full review

"One on one interaction with the teachers and staff allowed for a more personal connection"

Jordan Wiens - Alumnus   (Oct 02, 2018)

My time at RJC was exceptional. Due to the small size of the school and the high ratio of teachers to students, my academic experience was very positive. One on one interaction with the teachers and staff allowed for a more personal connection, creating more intimacy in the classroom between students and faculty. Something that stands out to me is the amount of extracurricular time put in by the staff at the school. Nearly every staff member was involved in coaching a sports team or leading...

"My grades increased significantly from my public school to RJC because of the extra encouragement and help. I felt prepared for university or anything I wanted to pursue."

Dayna Goerzen - Alumnus   (Oct 02, 2018)

Going to RJC was amazing, the best choice I made. I remember loving getting to live with my friends and building the strongest sense of community I’ve ever had. Living in the dorms was really fun and I made lifelong friendships. My grades at school also went up at least 10% while at RJC because the teachers actually care about you, how you do, and how you learn best. I also was able to study with peers in the dorms which helped a lot. The designated time each night for homework helped me to ac... View full review

"...great emphasis on not just bombarding the students with academic facts, but equipping them with knowledge to apply for life."

Johann Malan - Parent   (Oct 02, 2018)

All three of our children attended RJC and lived in the dorms. Two of them returned to serve as deans (one is still there). That says a lot, for starters! We are originally from South Africa and had very different school experiences there than what we could find here. We were looking for a school with a high standard of education, excellent educators, a great atmosphere, school spirit and traditions, and, importantly, a place where our children could feel at home and nurture and develop their ed...

"The number of extracurricular activities at RJC is just incredible."

Matthew Stefaniuk - Alumnus   (Oct 02, 2018)

Before going to Rosthern Junior College I was a very shy person and had a hard time making friends. Once I got to rjc that all changed, the atmosphere at the school made it possible for me to grow as a person and come out of my shell. The staff is incredibly supportive of all the students and guides you on your journey. Having the experience of living in dorms and being responsible for myself while still having others around to help guide me made the transition to university much easier than it ... View full review

"RJC gave me the freedom, the tools, and the support to grow into the person I am today."

Crystal Lau - Alumnus   (Sep 26, 2018)

My overall experience at RJC was life changing. I always say that RJC has been the best years of my life, and it was most definitely one of the greatest gifts my parents gave me. It was not just any other school, it was not a building for you to go to classes, but it was an experience. You have to live through it, to grow and learn from it. RJC gave me the freedom, the tools, and the support to grow into the person I am today. Without RJC, I wouldn't have been as confident, I probably wouldn't h... View full review
