school profiles

Please note | we’re building a new interactive mapping tool to make it easier to find schools using a familiar web interface, and will no longer be using the maps on this page. Because of that, these interactive maps show the boundaries for the 2013-14 school year, and may not be accurate for the 2014-15 school year. For current information, please refer to the “find a school by address” tool to find your designated school, see the list of schools by residential district and grade, or visit the school profile of the school you’re interested in to see the walk zone map in PDF. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to sharing our new site with you soon.

MidSun School has 782 students in the 2013 2014 school year. MidSun is located close to Fish Creek Provincial Park in the southeast community of Sundance, serving the communities of Midnapore, Sundance, Chaparral, Walden and Legacy. Elementary feeder schools are Fish Creek, Sundance, and Midnapore. Centennial High School receives MidSun graduates.

About the School

MidSun opened officially in September 1998. The building was designed to accommodate 800 students in four learning communities and offers a comprehensive core and complementary program. We are very fortunate to have a full service library, two computer labs and a high school sized gymnasium. We also have dedicated Art, Construction, Foods/Fashion, Fitness, Band and Drama rooms. In the 2010-2011 school year MidSun welcomed the inclusion of an ACCESS and ALP class to our student body.

About School Name

MidSun is a hybrid name chosen by the students and community members of Midnapore and Sundance. These citizens successfully launched a collaborative effort in 1996 to gain a junior high to reduce the need for busing. The result of their efforts is an impressive building that will meet the needs of the communities for many years to come.
