Laurier Macdonald High School is an International Baccalaureate World School that caters to all types of learners. Personal and academic accomplishment is developed through creative thought, rigorous intellectual inquiry and deepening respect for oneself and others in years three, four and five of the program.
Success is promoted through the teaching and exploration of multiple literacies and the Community Learning Center. Students choose to enroll in one of two academic streams: the IB/SÉBIQ certification stream or the CORE program, infused with the IB philosophy. In both streams, students have access to enriched courses in French, Math and Science, as well as advanced option courses at the Secondary 5 level, which enable the students to better position themselves for life after high school.
Health and well-being are essential aspects within the curriculum. The school promotes lifelong health and positive attitudes towards physical activity. Our physical education facilities include: two gymnasiums; a swimming pool; a fitness center; and outdoor facilities, including a track and a soccer field. The Laurier Macdonald Rams represent the school in a wide array of sporting events: soccer; basketball; swimming; track and field; and volleyball.
The IB program encourages students to have an open mindset and to be involved in their communities. We encourage student activism through the academics and extra-curricular activities, as these enable our students to become more caring and well-rounded individuals in society.
The students are offered the opportunity to experience a quality education that fosters a strong sense of community and a commitment to life-long learning. Our sister school, John Paul I High School, shares our values in promoting the holistic approaches in learning throughout years one and two.
