A huge thank you to the Whistler Blackcomb Foundation for their generous donation to our school in November. On behalf of the school and the community, we appreciate the continued support in helping to provide opportunities for our students.
Whistler Secondary supports all students, including our athletes. Student athletes at Whistler Secondary School vary considerably in the sports programs they participate in, including skiing, biking, luging, football, hockey, soccer, snowboarding, and track & field. Often, these programs require our athletes to be away from school throughout the year for training and competition purposes. Athletes recognize that, as students at WSS, there is a commitment and a balance needed to be a learner and a competitor.
Student athlete’s responsibilities include communicating their needs and schedules with the school and their teachers. Whistler Secondary works with these students to support their educational goals while complementing their training and competition commitments. Flexible scheduling and a hybrid model of online and in-class course delivery allows for students to find success in self-directed study while they are away. If needed, students find academic support in school when they return from training and competitions. Whistler Secondary takes pride in building supportive relationships with all of our students.
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.
