Jack James Family of Learners

Jack James’ students want to be successful, and have maybe struggled in the past, even though they work hard. If you are a learner who likes to work with your hands, and wants to have a rewarding job when you finish high school, we want you! If you like smaller classes, where your teacher knows who you are as a student and a person, we are the place for you.
We have successful sports teams who compete with other schools in a small league. Getting on a team is as easy as coming to practice!
Jack James also competes provincially and nationally in Skills Canada which is a competition program for all the different career based shops. Jack James has the largest Calgary School Team and has had Canadian Gold Medal Winners. You could be one, too!
