M. J-D fait de son mieux pour communiquer entièrement en français avec ses élèves de la maternelle à la 2 e année. Parfois, il doit montrer l'action plutôt que de dire le mot en anglais.

Mr. J-D does his best to communicate completely in French with our K-2 students. Sometimes this means having to act out the word, rather than say the word in English.
Using the Accelerative Integrated Methodology (AIM), Mr. J-D facilitates learning through scaffolding techniques, using story-telling, gestures, active collaboration and repetition. The use of high-frequency vocabulary, introduced with gestures and contextualized in stories, drama, songs and dance, allows students to rapidly achieve levels of oral and written proficiency rarely seen with conventional methods. 
Anyone who walks by his classroom will see that Mr. J-D's teaching technique keeps students engaged and interested and, of course, always smiling!
St. John’s-Ravenscourt School 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. SJR has inevitably grown and changed over the years since, though its success throughout has been unimpeachable. We have graduated 18 Rhodes scholars, for example, and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted patronage and established a scholarship in her name in 1981. Today the programs are as strong as our 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.
