About Us - School Overview
Welcome to New Westminster Secondary School
New Westminster Secondary is one of the largest high schools in British Columbia enrolling approximately 2000 students from grades 9 through 12.
We are proud of our many outstanding academic programs including International Baccalaureate and French Immersion as well as our outstanding performing arts, sports and apprenticeship programs.
There are many engaging options at our school for students as they journey towards graduation, including extra-curricular clubs and activities to suit a vast array of interests.
Our school has a rich culture where diversity is celebrated and relationships are nurtured.
Our mission at New Westminster Secondary School is to develop responsible citizens and lifelong learners who: Respect Learning, Respect the Environment, and Respect Themselves and Others. Students, staff and parents working together to teach, model and reinforce our three simple School Rules will ensure a successful year for everyone.
While we have a long and proud history at New Westminster Secondary School, we look toward the future with great optimism with the scheduled opening of a replacement school in January 2021.
This project is one of the largest capital school replacement projects in the history of the province at $106.5 million and promises to deliver a state-of-the-art facility for teaching and learning. These are truly exciting times for New Westminster Secondary School!
