WSS Staff would like to Thank Rick and Ryan Matishak from MGI for their work in helping us move forward with our school, building focus through an attitude of curiosity.

SD #48 has just sent three staff from WSS to High Tech High to learn more about project-based learning. We’re looking forward to hearing their feedback upon their return.

2015/16 and 2016/17 Draft School Calendars will be made available to parents, students, and staff starting February 11th. These will be emailed and available on our website once released.

Please note that exams will be starting shortly. Make the most of this last month. For a look at when Provincial Exams are, please click here. Please remember that WSS is hosting the later exam sitting from February 2nd – 5th.

Starting January 5th, our school district is moving to a new student information system called My Education BC. This will replace the current information system, BCeSIS. As we will be in the initial deployment stages, we ask that you call us immediately (604-905-2581) if you suddenly are not receiving email messages.

ATTENTION: Starting January 5th, WSS will be on a new bell schedule. Please click here for a look at the old and new bell schedules.

A huge THANK YOU to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation for their generous donation to WSS. Their support will be used to purchase additional robotics kits for programming, snow shoes for the OEL, and athletic wear for our sports teams. We greatly appreciate this continued assistance of our school’s initiatives to provide a healthy balance of athletics and academics at WSS.

WSS would also like to shout out a huge THANK YOU to the WSS PAC for their continued support on several initiatives at WSS. These include a technology-based robotics program, enhancing our textiles program, and providing sponsorship for increased WiFi coverage. All of these will support our initiatives around student engagement and learning in a digitally-rich environment.

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.
