Ray Michaud came to the John Thomas Dye School in 1978 and served as our beloved Head of School from 1981 until his retirement in 2014. No one individual has had as much impact on the history of the John Thomas Dye school than Ray Michaud. Ray taught, mentored, and coached over 2000 students during his time at JTD. Of his long list of accomplishments, he may be best known for instituting the 5Cs in 1986. Those five simple words have truly defined the culture of the John Thomas Dye School and they will forever be the foundation of how JTD students, past and present, treat each other and live their lives.
