School was founded in the summer of July 2008, by Ms. M. Dolores Bonilla. Ms.
Bonilla's vision for the school began as a focus to specialize and assist
children who struggle or advance in core subjects and/or behavioural attitudes.
The goal of the school would be to individualize programs for each student, so
that each student would experience success academically, socially and
inspiration for the school was Dr. A. Arthur Johnston and his wife Verna who,
in their lifetime, lived differently, lived selflessly and lived for God. As a
reminder for the love and care that they shared for others, Ms. Bonilla decided
to dedicate the name of the school to a family that humbly dedicated their
lives to further the kingdom of God, by helping the world around them.
“Children are a gift from God”
Johnston T. School is
a service for children that live and cope with learning diversities. These
diversities range anywhere from extremely advanced and gifted students, to
moderate and normal students and finally, for students who are struggling with
core subjects because of a learning disability or a behavioural attitude. Here
at Johnston T. School, we recognize and understand the importance of each child
and their different academic and social needs. Therefore, in order to cater to
each individual need, the Staff at Johnston is trained to academically assess
students and they strongly believe in small classroom sizes.
The school is located
in Full Gospel Church on 376 Carlton Street, in St. Catharines. Our space at
Full Gospel Church is quite vast, allowing the students the opportunity to
learn in classrooms and play within and outside of school grounds. With such
open space, monitored by staff, the students are given a safe environment where
they can feel relaxed and comfortable to perform their daily tasks and interact
with fellow students and teachers.
The school offers full
day, individual courses and academic programs to students from Junior
Kindergarten through the Grade 12 levels. The programs offered, are based on
the Ontario Curriculum. Enrolment is offered year round to all prospectus
students. We also extend our enrolment to International students and provide
arrangements for accommodations.
The school offers to
parents and/or guardians, extra care services. We offer before and after school
care, between the hours of 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM and from 3:30 PM – 5:30 PM. The
before and after school care is provided for an additional fee for those who
need and desire this service.
PARENT AND COMMUNITY
Here at Johnston,
staff encourage and welcome involvement from all parents and/or guardians. We
have an “open door” policy- where parents and/or guardians, have the
opportunity to come and observe their child in their academic and social
atmospheres. Any volunteer time during school hours or chaperoning for school
trips is greatly appreciated.We also provide opportunities for Co-Op
students, both in High School and at a Post Secondary level, who wish to
complete or to be involved at Johnston for communal services.
