Principal's Message

Welcome to Howe Sound Secondary. We are a vibrant school community learning together on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh nation. At our school we believe that diversity is a strength and inclusion is a right and we strive to create a safe and inclusive environment where all students feel they belong. Our goal as a school is to ensure that all of our students graduate with dignity, purpose and options.

We have a great diversity of programs at HSS. We offer students the opportunity to graduate with a Double Dogwood diploma in French Immersion. We also offer dual-credit courses in partnership with Kwantlen Polytechnic University (Level 1 Carpentry) and Vancouver Community College (Professional Cook 1). Our art programs, both visual and performing, provide students with an opportunity to be creative and our athletics teams have had great success against some very competitive schools. Our Outdoor Education program is an opportunity for students to experience new adventures outdoors, learn new skills, and discover their individual strengths. We also engage with community partners to provide learning experiences within the community and are excited to announce that we are working in partnership with Squamish CAN to build and run a school farm for the 2022/2023 school year. 

We are committed to providing a safe, high-quality learning experience focused on the individual needs of each student. We strive to empower our students to become creative problem-solvers, critical and innovative thinkers, and inspired learners ready to thrive in their post-secondary endeavours. 
Continued parent engagement is critical through the grad program years and we encourage parents to actively communicate with staff, attend school functions and learning opportunities as well as attend Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings when possible. Be sure to check our website for meeting details.
As your school principal, I feel privileged to walk alongside your child during their time at HSS. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email - [email protected]
