About Us

On September 6,1983, St. John Paul Il Catholic Secondary School opened its doors for the first time - only to be filled with 135 students.  JPII has established a fine reputation for academic excellence.  Ninety percent of our graduates go on to a successful post-secondary education.  St. John Paul Il was built in a circle enclosing a beautifully landscaped courtyard. The school has 41 classrooms, four science laboratories, three gyms, a large library, a student services area, a drama room, two music rooms, a drafting room, two tech shops, and two art rooms.

At the heart of the school is the chapel. The design and decorating of the chapel were paid for from monies raised by the students for this purpose.  Our goal is to assist each student to achieve the highest potential for spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional, social and moral growth.  At Pope, we emphasize the building of Christian community to which each student can feel a sense of belonging.  All students are encouraged to become active in the life of the school community and, through this involvement, model the Gospel.
