Hear From Our Teachers
“St. John Paul II is ‘the little school that could.’ It is a special place that has been built on relationships, dedication, and faith. Situated in the tight-knit ‘small-town’ community of Port Alberni, the school has been blessed with a dynamic and caring faculty, a supportive and active parent community, and a joyful and engaged student body. Framed by the beauty of Mt. Arrowsmith and the Beaufort Range, St. John Paul II is surrounded by many of the wonders of God’s Creation as lakes, rivers, forests, trails, and beaches are all readily accessible. St. John Paul II is an integral part of its community and to Island Catholics Schools as a whole and I feel most fortunate to be a contributing member and, as such, privy to the wonderful opportunities the school and community provide”
