Holy Spirit High is entrenched as a neighborhood school aspiring to the principles of academic excellence, co-curricular participation, life-long learning and community partnerships. Our school is committed to excellence in English and French literacy, mathematics, science/technology, social/cultural studies and the fine arts as program priorities. Our aim is to allow each individual student to achieve his/her personal best in a safe and caring environment. At Holy Spirit High parents, teachers and the administration are committed to a partnership approach where education is a shared responsibility. Together we are ‘striving for excellence’.

The past school year has seen much progress in academics, student involvement and parental participation. Our students were recognized for academic achievement at the district, provincial and national levels in many curriculum areas. Our Student Council and Interact Junior Rotary Club initiated many successful community outreach projects.

The mission of Holy Spirit High School is to create a a safe and caring learning environment where all students aspire to high standards of personal and academic achievement, and lifelong learning, while developing respect for self and others. This mission is achieved by providing a secure and caring school where social skills are taught to students. Consistent expectations are established and a variety of current teaching and learning strategies are utilized.

Performance is continuously evaluated. The ultimate goal for each of us in our school community is "to be the best that we can be".

We want all students to experience success…every day.
