Western Canada High School is one of the best schools in Canada. It has a distinguished history in our city that began in the early 1900s. Students who have graduated from Western Canada High School have become part of that legacy. Honouring its tradition of excellence, Western Canada High School continues to prepare and empower students to be knowledgeable, confident, lifelong learners, capable of enhancing their lives and the quality of our world. 

The school year also provides students with the opportunity to share their passions and skills to enhance the Western school culture. Besides their commitment to academic studies, students can get involved in school life through participation in athletics, fine arts, clubs, and social events. As you begin this next chapter in your life, we encourage you to get involved and explore the possibilities.

The course information on our website is important as you select the courses that will meet your educational needs and build a foundation for your future. While choosing your classes, I am asking you to keep in mind our school motto: Intelligentia, Vires, Virtus (Knowledge, Strength, Courage). Pick classes that will challenge you and will allow you to test your strength and your courage.

We look forward to working with you in the next years to build a better world.
