Grade 7 & 8 Information Nights for Specialty Programs

flyer of system sessionsThank you to all the Grade 7 and 8 students and families who have set aside time in their calendars for November’s Grade 7 & 8 Information Nights at HWDSB secondary schools. Click here to view a list of upcoming sessions.

Students and families are now invited to learn more about HWDSB programs at upcoming Grade 7 & 8 Information Nights for specialty programs!

HWDSB provides choice through a variety of courses, programs and pathways for students at their home school, including a number of Specialized (Tier 3) programs at various secondary schools.

We offer interested students transportation to these programs if they live out of the school catchment. Specialized Tier 3 programs are open to students beyond the school catchment based on their geographical location. Each specialized program will have a program boundary beyond the school boundary.

Information nights for the Audition-Based Arts Program (Glendale), Self-Paced/Self-Directed Programming (Westmount) and French Immersion (Sherwood and Westdale) are listed in the chart below. We look forward to seeing you!
