Grade 9

In September 2014, City School introduced a small, specialized academic Grade 9 program. Grade 10 followed in February, 2015. This is a return to its roots - 38 years ago, a group of parents and teachers created City School as a full secondary program with an emphasis on social justice. Over the years, the focus has broadened to environmental activism.

Starting in September 2017, Grade 9 students enrolled at City School will be encouraged to take six specialized credits in their senior years in order to focus on environmental awareness and community advocacy.

2017-18 Grade 9 Courses:


 Integrated Arts, Math, English, PhysEd, Learning Skills

Semester 2:

Drama, Science, Geography, Expressions of Aboriginal Culture

NEW: Audio/Video Production, Music Focus
