About Us

Options High School offers secondary IV and secondary V programs for students who have had difficulty suc-ceeding in a regular school setting. Our small class sizes allow students to concentrate on their academic goals, and allow teachers the chance to understand the unique needs of each student.

Educational Framework

All students at Options follow an Individualized Education Plan created by their teachers and work at their own pace to complete their academic demands. Resources such as; one-on-one tutoring services, childcare support, and guidance counseling are accessible to all students seeking extra support.

The school provides a safe, intercultural environment that promotes mutual respect and cooperative learn-ing. It strives to increase self-confidence and self-esteem through its highly supportive and community-like atmosphere. Our number one goal is to create an atmosphere that enables students to thrive and to pro-mote interest in academic subjects that are challenging.
