Our Students

Our Students are Explorers

Our students are dancers, artists, public speakers, chess players, basketball stars, designers and so much more. Some come to SJS with these interests, while others develop their interests and talents through our diverse courses, clubs and athletic options. Whatever their passion, they can explore it at SJS.

The IB curriculum provides students with unique opportunities to explore their individual passions while learning. Student-led personal projects allow our students to follow their inspiration and research interesting topics, present relevant findings and showcase their knowledge, passion and expertise.

Through this process, students build technical skills, confidence and cultivate their personal interests.

Our Graduates are Prepared

In order for graduates to succeed in our ever-growing complex and connected world, students must develop strong communication skills, learn to effectively work in groups and be able to embrace change and difference.

That’s exactly why we embrace the globally recognized IB curriculum as the best vehicle to prepare students for school, university and life. Our graduates speak two or more languages, have already written a 4,000 word research essay, work in teams frequently, have successfully taken a variety of exams and are knowledgeable about the world around them.

100% of our graduates are accepted into a university of their choice. We are proud of that fact, but what we are most proud of is how successful and happy our students are in their lives beyond school. Not only do they graduate from university, they remain active volunteers and life-long learners.
