At Whistler Secondary School, we pursue excellence in all that we do and support each other in order to achieve our personal goals of success. We’re honored to be learning on the traditional territories of the Squamish and Lil’wat nations, within the beautiful community of Whistler, B.C.
Whistler Secondary is a closely knit community of learners where grade 8 to 12 students receive individualized attention from their teachers and strong support from their parents and community. In addition to working hard academically, students are encouraged to develop their unique talents and abilities by participating in self-directed after-school activities such as choir, musical theatre and dance. These activities are supported by locally developed courses and students receive credits for their participation.
The school also promotes global stewardship and citizenship by sponsoring student leadership groups, running an extensive recycling program and supporting a nutritious hot lunch program. As a result, students not only receive a first-rate academic education, but also develop into well-rounded citizens who are sensitive to the needs of their community and the world at large.
Whistler Secondary is dedicated to the Pursuit of Excellence in all areas; particularly in academics, athletics and fine arts. The school is infused with a sense of enthusiasm, energy and passion that inspires students to make their dreams a reality; whether it’s becoming a professional artist, winning an Olympic medal, embarking on a career in outdoor recreation or achieving an academic level of success that will open doors to the finest universities in the world.
