"Wildcats rule"

“Johnson is a small school.  The teachers are nice, kind and caring.  The teachers know how to make class fun.  People are easy to get along with.”

“The teachers actually care about you and your marks. They want to help you succeed.”

“I feel loved and safe here.  My friends are like family to me.  This school has the best teachers.”

“Because Johnson is small, everybody knows each other and you always have someone to turn to.  Also the teachers know you and keep a close eye on you.”

Academic Programs:

Johnson Collegiate is proud to offer an academic program that supports all learners in an inclusive environment.   Johnson has an advisory group (JAG) where a group of students is attached to an advisor who coaches them through their high school years.  This small school setting has a wonderful community atmosphere where teachers get to know the students and work to meet student needs.

Extra-curricular Activities:

At Johnson Collegiate, there are a wide range of activities that encompass student interests in a multitude of areas.  Being an active participant in school activities is encouraged and valued as an essential part of high school experience.  There are opportunities for students to explore and expand their skills or interests in the fine arts, athletic, cultural/social leadership or technical areas. 

Welcoming Grade 9 Students:

Grade 9 students are welcomed in a “Day in the Life” spring activity.  An Open house provides parents and students with valuable information and registration.  Johnson Collegiate values the added support of guidance and school counselors, elders, an aboriginal advocate and a resource officer.  This valuable team offers support in a friendly and warm environment.

SRC:

Johnson’s SRC has a strong sense of community.  There is an amazing school spirit.  Each year, spearheaded by the SRC, the school raises thousands of dollars for the Neonatal Unit at the Regina General Hospital.  Johnson has been the highest yearly fundraiser.

School Community Council:

The Johnson Collegiate Community Council (SCC for short) is made up of parents, teachers, students and community members who work together to support learning. The SCC gives parents an opportunity to learn about what's going on at Johnson, both in academics and extra-curricular activities.  It is also an opportunity to meet Johnson staff and other parents, something that's often difficult in a high-school environment.

Facility:

Johnson Collegiate, opened in September 1985, is in the east end of Regina, Sask. It is Regina’s “Hidden Treasure” as the inclusive environment offers students an opportunity to be a part of a smaller school setting.  Johnson’s facility has many attractive features, including a welcoming common area at the school entrance. 

Partnership with Campus Regina:

Campus Regina Public provides high school students (Grades 11 and 12) from across the division the opportunity to enroll in specialty two credit courses, and dual university courses.  Each course is industry supported and features approved training that may not be available in their home school.  Students will engage in learning opportunities with others who share their passion for a specialty field of study which better supports their learning as they prepare for the transition to post-secondary studies and the workplace.  This opportunity is open to all high schools in Regina Public Schools.

School History

The school has the honour of being named after the Honourable Frederick W. Johnson, a former Lieutenant-Governor of Saskatchewan and recipient of The Order of Canada, The Saskatchewan Order of Merit and The Order of St. John.

Mr. Johnson first distinguished himself during World War II by serving as a Canadian Officer. He was overseas for five years and returned to Canada determined to pursue a career in law. He practised law for many years and was appointed “Queen’s Counsel” before becoming a Judge of the Saskatchewan Court of Queen’s Bench, where he served for 18 years, the last six as the Chief Justice of the Court.

An outstanding Canadian citizen, Mr. Johnson accepted the post of Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Saskatchewan in 1983 and remained in that office for five years. He is remembered by those who knew him well as one of the most beloved Lieutenant-Governors in the Province’s history.

He and his wife Joyce were always among the school’s most avid supporters and could be found at drama, music and sporting events on a regular basis. He lent his initials to the school as the basis of our motto: “FWJ – “Fortitude”, “Wisdom”, and “Justice”. He was a great man; our school is fortunate to be named after him.
