Our High School students are offered all of the core courses necessary to graduate. We also offer a number of courses that meet different interest levels. Courses such as drama, robotics, foods, philosophy, world religions, aboriginal art, art, music, welding, finance, marketing, forestry, outdoor education, workplace, agriculture and other subjects that our students request. The school also offers courses in the area of Knowledge and Employability. Our school has a High School Success Coach and a High School Career Counsellor who help our students select their courses, help keep them on track to be successful, and support the students as they explore future plans.
The students in grades 1-6 who require extra support or enrichment are given the opportunity to work with Special Education teachers. We also have a school readiness teacher to help those students who may have missed kindergarten and require some catch up. We also have a speech and language program. This program helps the students in lower elementary who may be having difficulty forming sounds and words. We have extra academic support available for our 7-12 students. This allows the students an opportunity to work in a small group setting to build their skills.
John D’Or Prairie School is a very technology forward school. Our students have the use of SMART board technology, Chrome books, iPads, 3D printing capabilities and robotics. Our students are learning computer aided design and other various technology programs.
We are very pleased to have a mental wellness counsellor on site. The counsellor works with individual students, but also works with the classes on increasing awareness of mental wellness.
