Principal's Message

Welcome to the Canterbury High School Learning Community.

Located in the southeast sector of Ottawa, Canterbury High School is a hub of creative activity for over 1,250 students.  It is a school with a 50 year tradition of excellence comprised of students from our local community and students from across and the city who have auditioned for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board’s Secondary Arts programme.  There is a rich diversity in the school population that is respected and encouraged. As a result, our students are motivated, creative, energetic and committed to their studies, their school, and their community.

Our goal, as a learning community, is to nurture well-being and excellence in our students by challenging them with the best of the academic, artistic and extra-curricular worlds, while providing a safe and caring learning environment. All members of our learning community are encouraged to participate in all aspects of our school in order to facilitate our students’ journey through secondary education and to become well-rounded individuals who care about and understand our greater community.
