School Philosophy

John A. McDougall is a community of learners with tremendous courage and a desire for growth. Setting high expectations for all of our students, we focus on improving student achievement and ensuring all children get the support and the resouces they need to reach their full potential. We believe that literacy is the right of every child. A tool for empowerment, literacy allows our students to better understand the world around them and to take action in contributing towards a democratic society. At John A. McDougall, we also work together to create a respectful, safe and caring environment for every individual by practicing the 3Rs: respect for self, respect for others and responsibility for all actions.
