Philosophy / Mission
Laurentian Regional High School is dedicated in its desire to provide a positive and cooperative learning environment that promotes tolerance, self-esteem, respect for others and a strong sense of community. Students are encouraged to work and achieve to their full potential in both the academic and extra-curricular realms.
Laurentian Regional High School's history can be traced back to 1968 when the Government created polyvalent high schools. This concept provided both academic and vocational profiles, with a variety of course options and a vibrant extra-curricular program. Nestled in the foothills of the Laurentians, the school is home to approximately 800 students. Many of our graduates continue their post secondary studies in college, universities and technical schools.
Parent Participation at Laurentian Regional High School is a vital component of the communication we endeavour to establish with the home. Whether it be the Governing Board (includes 9 parents) which meets 8-9 times a year or the Parent Participation Organization, parents are very active and committed to the school's growth and improvement. Parents volunteer in the school and actively fund-raise for student activities.
Laurentian Regional High School offers a wide range of programs to serve our diverse community of learners. In addition to the basic courses required for CEGEP entry, an enriched curriculum is provided in Maths and French. An impressive array of options is also offered in the Arts and Sciences to complement our core subjects. We also provide for our Special Needs students with a range of support including remedial and resource classes. Our APL Program(16+ work study) is designated to provide students with the necessary skills to be successful in the workplace and at the same time meet their needs in the core areas. The Junior APL (15+) Program incorporates core subjects and those of a manual and technical nature to enable students to develop skills in different areas
