Welcome to our website! BCSS is a sport-focus school that caters to the needs of student-athletes. At BCSS, we understand the unique needs of student-athletes and have in place a structure of support designed to provide programming that allows our students to be successful academically while pursuing their athletic goals.
 
Our ongoing focus on professional learning ensures that our teaching practices in the classroom are always improving to better cater to the individual learner. Conducting professional research to support our teaching/learning practice is a founding pillar of Bill Crothers SS that the current staff remain committed to in order to be progressive and ensure that our practices and our learning environment continue to change to reflect the best of a Modern Learning context. 
 
Our school has embarked on a Modern Learning Inquiry-based project that allows students to recognize the interrelated and real-world relevance of their curriculum subjects. We are starting with our grade nines with intention of moving the project into all grades in the near future. Our students will identify and explore a topic of their choosing that incorporates all the subjects they are taking during each semester. We plan to engage our parents as part of this learning process, and we are excited about the learning and creativity that will result. As well, there is a continued focus on Mathematics to develop our staff and students’ growth mindsets grounded in the belief that any level of school math is obtainable. We will further support a cross-curricular emphasis on development of math skills. Additionally, a critical aspect of our staff learning this year is Equity and Inclusivity. At BCSS we commit to rethinking our current landscape to ensure that we engage in the work of dismantling systemic barriers to those less served by our educational system in order to create the conditions for the academic success and wellbeing for all our students. We must ensure a positive and inclusive space for all staff and students in an environment where voices are heard, valued, and respected in a context that continually works to eradicate racism and all forms of discrimination. At BCSS, we recognize that the ongoing learning of our staff is critical to our students’ achievement and wellbeing, as well as cultivating a positive learning and working environment.
 
We have a number of new staff joining the BCSS team this year including an additional vice-principal, Mr. Scot Angus.
 
Please feel free to contact our school with any inquiries. Thank you for visiting our website.
