MORE WAYS TO SUCCEED IN HIGH SCHOOL

Regina Public Schools is implementing a new High School Strategy for the 2015/16 school year. The goal of this strategy is to create more equity of opportunities for all high school students in Regina Public Schools through a student’s neighbourhood high school, as well as providing access to Campus Regina Public programming.

This change is important to you and to students because it will more closely align elementary schools with their neighbourhood high schools and provide much greater access to curricular and extra-curricular programming for all students, regardless of where they live in the city of Regina. It will mean a much clearer and successful transition from elementary school to high school.  This change comes after consultation with parents, students, staff and the community.

The benefits to all high school students will be:

  • Access to a diverse set of quality courses and extracurricular programs at all neighbourhood high schools.
  • Access to more specialized programming for French Immersion, and enriched programming, including Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate.
  • Students will also benefit from programming at Martin Academy, as well as specific programs for students with intensive support needs.
  • All Grades 11 and 12 students will have access to Campus Regina Public courses, regardless of which high school they attend.

All Grade 8 students received a brochure detailing the changes and will also have had the opportunity to learn more at their neighbourhood high school open houses in February and March. We invite you to find out more. To find out more, Please contact your school principal and for more detailed information, please visit: http://www.rbe.sk.ca/our-schools/high-schools/high-school-strategy.
