Preparing for High School

High School Information for those starting grade 10 in Fall 2022

High school information, including how high school tours will be happening, is constantly changing. If you are unsure what school your child is designated to, you can use the CBE Find a School link (below) or ask their teachers who have been given a list. You can also visit the website of the designated school for their latest updates. 

Students must register at their designated high school. We cannot change an address, especially for a grade 9 student, without going through the proper process;  if a student thinks they are going to a different high school, the parents need to contact Deborah Loewen in our office. 

Most high schools have had or will have virtual tours either posted on their websites or live on Teams. Some high schools have indicated that they may host in-person tours to students who request them; you can contact the high school and see if you are able to set up an appointment.

  • Pearson will be continuing with the  ‘de-tracked’ grade 10 course program (where students will be enrolled in core classes and earn credit in the -1 or -2/3 level depending on achievement) – students do not have to choose their core classes. Students will need only to request 3 ‘options’ classes; we will be requesting these through an online form (exactly the same as last year).
