John Grant High School
John Grant High School is an alternative secondary school nestled in the borough of Côte-St-Luc. John Grant High School specializes in the education of exceptional students whose needs are not being met or cannot be met within mainstream high schools. We provide a safe, inclusive environment for students who are typically between the ages of 11 and 21 years old and have learning difficulties or intellectual impairments and/or significant academic delays.
All of our students follow an individualized education plan (IEP) tailored to their academic, social and emotional goals. We offer many unique programs that help our students develop their academic, social and life-skills as well as gaining valuable experience in vocational areas and work placements. Our students graduate from a variety of programs with MEQ accreditations and certifications, but it's important to note that our school does not offer programs leading to a general secondary school diploma.
We serve students on the territory of the English Montreal School Board and greater Montreal area. Students who wish to attend John Grant are scheduled for a case conference whereby a team of in-school and school board-level professionals review the recommendation of the referring school and meet with the student and their family to ensure that the student’s needs can be met at our school. These meetings happen throughout the school year, and students who are eligible receive school bus transportation to and from school. About half of our students travel independently to school while the remainder rely on school bus transportation or are brought to school by their parents/guardians.
