Dear Students and Parents of GMHS;
Welcome to the 2016/17 School Year! As the new Principal of George McDougall High School, I am thrilled to join this vibrant school community that has such a rich history.
This is an exciting time in secondary school in this province. With High School Redesign, teachers are empowered to provide flexible, engaging learning environments and personalized learning. In addition to providing embedded time within the timetable to support students in their learning, school-wide literacy time promotes reading for enjoyment and re-engaging high school students in the benefits of reading on a regular basis.
In addition to academic courses, GMHS provides students a wide variety of opportunities to engage in modern languages (French Immersion, Japanese, German) arts, music, athletics, outdoor pursuits and a host of other courses to further enhance their learning experience.
Parent involvement is important to us and I encourage each parent to take an active role in the school community such as volunteering, coaching, or parent council. Please contact me should you be interested in seeing how you can help make a Mustang difference!
