Discover Grades 7-12 at the OCSB
All of our schools offer a variety of sports, arts, clubs and activities to encourage our students to grow and thrive. Students can also become active in social justice and humanitarian projects to foster self-expression and build leadership skills.
Academic opportunities help students discover their strengthsConquering the curriculum may be the goal, but that's only part of what the journey through high school is all about. The high school journey helps students discover their strengths and weaknesses, or their likes and dislikes. We make sure that the curriculum is relevant to each student's world, so that they can discover their potential and start planning for the future. Our wide variety of program options offer different program paths to meet the needs of our diverse learners.
A Parent's Guide to High School - Entering grade 9Changing grades is an exciting adventure for students, especially when entering high school. They're growing up, but you still have a role in your child's education. Our Parent's Guide to High School helps you prepare your child for the transition to grade 9. Our guide covers the essentials of how high school operates. It outlines what is different in grades 7 & 8, how to keep connected online and in school, and how to be involved in both school events and the bigger picture.
