Principal’s Message

Saltfleet District High School, located in Upper Stoney Creek, services a community with both urban and rural roots. Our catchment area stretches from the Niagara and Haldimand County borders to the escarpment.  Saltfleet Township was a township in Upper Canada, later Ontario, on the south shore of Lake Ontario. The name Saltfleet comes from the name of a Lincolnshire coastal village. In 1974, it was amalgamated with the village of Stoney Creek to form the town of Stoney Creek.

Saltfleet has a student population of 1225 that is increasing annually as residential homes continue to be built in the area.  Opened in 1996 at its current site, Saltfleet is the most recently built Secondary School in the Hamilton-Wentworth DSB.  Saltfleet is also one of only two secondary schools in Canada with a fully operational Observatory! The original Saltfleet opened in 1927 on Grays Road and was in operation until the new school opened.

Known as “The Storm”, Saltfleet has a rich tradition of academics, athletics, and the arts.   High expectations in the classroom and in extra-curricular activities allow students to recognize their abilities and achieve their full potential.  Blessed with a dedicated staff, Saltfleet students have the opportunity to participate in a vast array of field trips, sports, and clubs.

Saltfleet is also the home to three Specialist High Skill Major programs – Construction, Horticulture and Non-Profit. All students complete and receive a wide range of industry-recognized certifications.  Students and teachers spend time constructing local projects (House for Habitat For Humanity, landscape Projects for area schools or Nursing homes), with a full compliment of tools. Students will participate in reach-ahead opportunities at Mohawk & Niagara College, participate in all-day work experience (with various trades), and have access to the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders and Landscape Ontario. Saltfleet has added a 20′ by 40′ greenhouse and Quonset hut, as well as a multitude of equipment.  Recent partnerships with local businesses  for material, education and equipment will allow for the development of practical landscape construction and maintenance opportunities.

Whether pursuing a future that includes going directly to work, college, or university, Saltfleet students have a wide variety of courses from which to choose including horticulture, quantity cooking (hospitality), outdoor education, leadership, fitness, yearbook, rugby or basketball Focus,  enhanced English and mathematics, photography, communications, and keyboarding.
