Today I show you why Waterloo has such a big English speaking community. It is because of the
St. John’s school which was opened in Waterloo in September 1969 with 420 students and 30 teachers. Between 1971 and 1973, the facilities were extended to include a High School. In 1979, St. John’s introduced the International Baccalaureate (IB) and was one of the early adopters of this curriculum.
