At McKenzie Highlands, our priority is to give students the fullest academic, physical, social, and emotional developmental experiences possible. Our academic, complementary, athletic and citizenship programs provide enormous opportunities for student growth.
Academically, the unique learning styles and needs of individual students are recognized and assignments and projects reflect student voice and choice. As well, students are given opportunities for enrichment and additional support. We believe fundamentally in the importance of “options” for adolescent learners and host a complementary program that offers students the opportunity to take such classes as Drama, Art, Band, French, Foods, Outdoor Education, Computer Technology, Sports Performance, Fashion Studies, Robotics, Legal Studies, Business Enterprise, Construction and Leadership over the course of two semesters.
Students are offered extensive choice in their physical education classes and may further access physical developmental opportunities through our intramural program and extra-curricular athletic teams which may include volleyball, soccer, cross-country, basketball, badminton, and track and field.
