Philosophy / Mission

Rosemere High School offers a nurturing and safe environment for students to achieve an excellent education, which prepares them for CEGEP/university as well as for life skills in any vocation. Their learning should encompass both academic and personal growth.

A diversified curriculum forms the basis for a holistic and individualized education whether in enriched, regular or alternative needs streams. Scholarship, leadership and communication skills are integrated in every course and activity.

Values education accross the curriculum underpins the school's fundamental orientation. The student, free from physical or verbal harassment, can develop a personal attitude of respect wherein he/she strives for excellence. Hard work and acceptance of responsibility and accountability for learning and behaviour, both social and personal, will evoke within the student a sense of pride in himself /herself and others, as well as respect for self, for peers, for adults, and, most importantly, the diversity in our society.

Other Information

"The support of so many committed teachers helped me, as a teenager, develop an interest in the world around me and become active in finding ways I could work to be part of it and improve it. The classes at RHS left me feeling that I was not only a member of a community but that it would support me on my path and help me reach my goals. Thank you!"
