History edit

In the politically charged atmosphere of Quebec's Bill 101 debate, the school was the target of an arson attack during the 1988 winter break. The fire burned the main office and postponed school restarting in the 1989 new year.[2]

In 1991, the school's athletic program adopted the team name St John's Knights, an allusion to the Knights of St John.
