Message from the Principal

On behalf of our staff, I would like to welcome you into the James Rhoads family.  Rhoads School offers children in Kindergarten to Grade Eight, an enriching academic and social experience.  Our dedicated staff and community partnerships work together to allow each child the opportunity to develop his/her potential to its fullest.


Educational success is greatly dependent upon the bond that is forged between school and home.  It is our hope that with students, parents and teachers working together the school year will be our best. 


Joe Dixon, Principal
