We're one of the biggest high schools in Western Canada. That means we're able to offer more to our students. These are just a few of the reasons we think you should be at JP.
1 You can be yourself.
Students tell us they feel they can really be themselves at JP and that makes us proud. Everyone feels like they have a special place at our school - we learn from each other, respect each other and celebrate our differences.
2 Our staff love their jobs.
Our teachers have received provincial, national and international recognition for excellence in teaching. Teachers, counselors, administration, and other staff are dedicated to helping everyone succeed. Our students tell us that makes the difference in ensuring a great high school experience.
3 We'll tailor a program specifically for your needs.
Every JP student spends time with one of our counselors to establish a unique educational and career plan that supports each student's style of learning, interests and aspirations. Visit the Student Services section of our site to learn more about the Career Centre and our popular "Cool Jobs" speaker series.
4 You'll have the opportunity to be challenged.
Research has shown that AP and IB students are better prepared to handle the academic rigor experienced at university, and we're the only high school in Edmonton to offer both! Visit the Programs & Courses section to learn more about the AP and IB programs at JP.
5 We'll prepare you for the future.
We provide you with the tools you need to succeed after high school. Our unique course offerings, modern technology, and state of the art facilities will give you an edge and ensure our graduates can compete with the best in the world.
6 You can work while you study - and earn credits doing it!
Explore a future career through our Work Experience program or RAP (Registered Apprenticeship Program) where you can receive on the job training and experience. Learn more about these off-campus education options in the Programs & Courses section of this site.
7 You can get involved.
Belt out a tune at Christmas Karaoke, use your charm to help raise funds for charity or try out your rocket arm at Dodgeball Mania in the spring! Each month, student leaders organize energizing activities for staff and students to build school spirit. Visit the Student Life section of this site to learn more about getting invloved and earning credits doing it through the T.E.A.M. Leadership program.
8 We give you the chance to explore your interests.
With more than 100 courses to choose from, and more than 30 clubs and teams to join, we know you will find something for you. Choose options like Cosmetology, Guitar or Web Design. Are you going to try out for the Wrestling, Cheer, or Golf team? You might find students just like you in the Book Club, Theater Club, or Ski Club. We have it all!
9 We have our very own TV channel.
Our talented Media Communication Technology students produce and broadcast a weekly episode of JPTV, keeping our entire school up to date on campus events. Not to be missed!
10 Rebel pride.
You can see Rebel pride in all aspects of student life at Jasper Place. It's apparent when we celebrate JP students achieving academic excellence (have you ever seen a mascot at a Math Competition?). You can hear it when the crowd roars in support of our athletes. You can see it in the bright red shirts, face paint, and posters throughout the school. We're bold, confident and proud. We are Rebels!
