Principal’s Message

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our students, parents, and staff to Whistler Secondary School. We are honored to be learning on the traditional territories of the Squamish and Lil’wat nations, within the beautiful community of Whistler, B.C.

Learning at Whistler Secondary focuses on cognitive, social, emotional, physical, and ethical development, in collaboration with parents, educational and community partners. Through these partnerships, students at Whistler Secondary have extraordinary opportunities to create, contribute, and demonstrate the significance of learning within the Sea-To-Sky corridor.

Our school endeavors to engage students in the areas of collaboration, creativity, contribution, and critical thinking while actively pursuing their academic and personal ambitions. Specifically, we understand that in order for this to happen, our systems must reflect progression from isolation to collaboration, reaction to purpose, and compliance to engagement (Tony Wagner, et al., Change Leadership, 2005) .

I look forward to working with parents, staff, and community partners to build safe, purposeful, and powerful learning opportunities for our students such that they can meet the core competencies of a successful student of the 21st Century (SD #48).

Have a safe and exciting year at Whistler Secondary School!


Mr. N. Cox
