Welcome to Thornhill Secondary School!  Our school serves a diverse urban community including students who have many interests and abilities.  Our goal is to support all students. Our focus is to enhance student well-being, learning and achievement. We do this by maximizing the opportunities our students have to pursue their future goals, and providing programming that is engaging, dynamic and relevant to meet their needs today and prepare them for tomorrow.  We offer students a wide range of courses and specialty programs to support their success in any post secondary pathway, including: university, college, workplace, Advanced Placement courses, Specialist High Skills Major programs, High Performance Athlete program and apprenticeships.

Our dedicated and caring staff provides a safe, inclusive and positive learning environment where the contributions of all students are affirmed. We encourage students to choose courses and specialty programs that offer a balanced approach to academics and co-curricular activities. Students have many opportunities to become involved in leadership courses, participate in a variety of activities in athletics, the arts, technology and student government. We work closely with parents/guardians to support and encourage students in their academic pursuits and believe that we are partners in every student’s education and well-being.
Our courses reflect a focus on literacy across the curriculum, critical thinking and developing the skills that students will need to thrive in this ever changing world. We encourage students to work collaboratively with peers, use technology effectively, communicate in a variety of forms and develop problem solving skills that enable them to transition successfully to post secondary programs and workplaces. Our graduates regularly receive awards, scholarships, program offers to universities
and colleges of their choice, and return to let us know that the preparation and time spent in our school served them well.
Please contact us if you need any information or assistance with regard to programs or student progress.
