Located in the heart of downtown Hamilton, Sir John A. Macdonald Secondary School is one of the largest multi-cultural schools outside of Toronto. Canadians, including a sizeable group of aboriginal students, study alongside ESL students coming from about 80 countries and speaking more than 50 languages.
Our state-of-the-art auditorium seats 750 people for theatre productions, musical events, school assemblies, and community events. Seven computer labs with over 200 computers are available for student use.
SJAM is a safe and inviting school where dedicated staff offer programs in every academic area at all levels, including Workplace, College, University and ESL congregated classes, as well as many new stay-in-school and school-to-work initiatives. Our extra-curricular activities are as diverse as the student population, ranging from sports to music to art to homework and ESL clubs.
We encourage parents and guardians to take an active and regular interest in the progress of their sons and daughters, so that together we can develop the skills and attributes that are vital for success in the third millennium. We help our students to develop a sense of responsibility and thoughtfulness towards others and the best possible use of their abilities. We continue to provide a happy, friendly and stimulating atmosphere that attracts students and spurs all of us into giving our very best effort.
Macdonald is Number One! Blue and Gold is Number One!
