About Olds High School

December 2018

On behalf of the staff of OHS, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and the best of New Years!  So much good has transpired in the first four months of the school year. Sister Act was a great success, the zone volleyball championship was outstanding, student leadership classes work tirelessly to help enrich student life, and students at OHS continue to excel academically on provincial exams.  The thing in common in these achievements is the amazing students of OHS.

Thank you for all of your support.

Olds High School is part of the Community Learning Campus (CLC). The CLC is an innovative approach to high school, post-secondary, and community education. The CLC addresses specific rural needs by sharing resources and working jointly with a variety of community groups and agencies. Currently, we have about 600 students, grades 9 - 12 enrolled at our school.

OHS is embracing a high school experience that provides more schedule flexibility and increased student self-direction in order to better serve 21st Century learners.  The physical design of our facility reflects a non-traditional (non-industrial model) personalized learning environment. Organized around four learning neighbourhoods or ‘Quads;’ core subjects are embraced by interdisciplinary teams of teachers working with a fixed group of students.

Our teaching staff is extensively involved in a variety of professional development activities besides normal conference and workshop involvements.  Our staff has representatives on district committees (e.g. Language Arts, Technology, and Math), diploma and achievement exam markers and test designers; government field tests are administered every year; people working at the provincial level on curriculum projects

Our school programs are expanding to offer more preparation for entry into the work world and to introduce technology career opportunities to our students. Career Preparation, Green Certificates, RAP Plus, and expanded Career transitions are all current projects being offered to students at OHS.
