John XXIII School is located in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. We offer a French Immersion program from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8. John XXIII is very much a community school.

Our mission is that our students grow into literate, numerate, fluent, caring concerned and faithful citizens. We achieve this goal by working together with students, parents, the community and the church.

We have a superb staff, excellent volunteers and we are home to the Snoezelen Room. (You can read about the Snoezelen Room further in the site).
