Senior School

The Senior School is a special place that offers a rich variety of academic, athletic, artistic and leadership opportunities for our students. I hope this site gives you a sense of how great it is to be a GNS student and encourages you to explore further. We are always happy to welcome visitors to our school.
High schools are meant to be places of exploration, where young people can feel comfortable to push their boundaries within a caring network of support. This is where GNS excels! As a small high school of close to 300 students, we have a strong sense of community with a relaxed but professional atmosphere. Every student is an important member of our school. We advocate genuine respect for one another and an attitude that welcomes and celebrates diversity.

Our students differentiate themselves in many ways. GNS is one of a very small number of schools in North America that is a member of both the prestigious Round Square and International Baccalaureate organizations. GNS graduates are scattered around the world, and they are a testament to the integrity of our values and programs. Our distinguished faculty and supportive parent body all contribute to making the GNS Senior School one of the best in Canada.

We wish to acknowledge and respect the Straits Salish Peoples on whose traditional territory we gather. Specifically, we recognize the Lekwungen Peoples known today as the Songhees Nation and the Esquimalt Nation, whose historical relationships with the land where we live, work, play and learn continue to this day.
