ACADEMICS & CLUBS
The objectives of the AP Program include providing a proven, viable, challenging program alternative to highly motivated, academically talented, high achieving students. Students must enjoy challenges, have well-developed work ethics, be motivated and self-disciplined, and find learning exciting and stimulating. An obvious, but not singular, benefit of the program is that students may obtain university credit while still in high school.
To be considered for the AP or Pre-AP program, a student must have written teacher permission and parent approval. Generally, a mark of 85 in a prerequisite course is suggested for students who wish to take an AP or Pre-AP course. More information can be picked up from the Principal’s office.
Practical And Applied Arts
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is an exciting, fun-filled club that provides leadership and service opportunities for students at John Paul II. The SRC is a student directed club which allows members to get involved and strengthen their leadership skills. Students are responsible for organizing and planning the various activities and events that they would like to pursue and offer at the school. The SRC is responsible for School Spirit events such as Spirit days, JP II Fridays, Halloween week, Christmas week and May Super Long. The SRC also organizes various events such as pep rallies and gym blasts with the goal of increasing student engagement and to help build a sense of community and pride within the school. In addition, the SRC provides students with opportunities to learn about leadership, teamwork, and social justice through special events, speakers and conferences.
The SRC is open to any student wanting to join as we strive to be a truly representative student body. For more information on the SRC please contact one of the club members or one of the SRC advisors: Mr. Donahue, Mrs. Nachtegaele, Mr. Sieben or Mr. Fauchon. Meetings are held every Thursday at lunch in room 213.
