Saint John Students Overwhelmingly See Their Schools As Being Safe

96 per cent of grade 9 students and parents who responded to a survey in School District 8 say the transition from middle school to high school was a positive experience. 

Rob Fowler who chairs the District 8 Education Council credits the staggered start which saw only the grade 9 students go to school on the first day so they wouldn't be hassled by students in grades 10, 11 and 12. 

Fowler says he would like to see an even more staggered start next year.

The Saint John figure was higher than the provincial average.
