Principal's Message

Welcome to the Nepean High School website! As you read through the pages of this site, you will learn about our students, our school, and get a feel for the tradition and commitment to excellence that defines the Nepean community. For nearly a century, students at Nepean H.S. have benefited from a holistic education, excellence in academics, the arts and athletics, alongside a relentless commitment to character development. With the recent focus on the OCDSB’s Exit Outcomes, a series of skills and characteristics, our graduates will be empowered to be successful in the global world that surrounds us.

At NHS we charge our students with 3 tasks. Firstly, to follow our school mission: Love Purple; Live Gold! In this we mean that we expect our students to love their days at NHS and to work with passion. We expect them to contribute positively to the lives of others. We see passion and service to others as critical steps in achieving excellence. Secondly, we challenge our students to Leave a Legacy! Many of our most successful initiatives from charity events to community fundraising at Nepean are student-led projects which have created a legacy of service and achievement. Finally, we expect that all members of the Nepean community will respect everybody, every day, all of the time.

We count on student voice to guide our work! This year, the school’s wellbeing plan goal is student-developed and student-driven. Our strong leadership programs and Knights of Character initiatives offer a plethora of opportunities for students to find their voice. We want our Knights to get involved.

We are committed to providing a strong foundation that will empower all students to be successful in an age of acceleration and constant change in which lifelong learning is paramount. Consequently, our staff will help all students learn how to learn in the context of the 21st century and discover how their skills and passion can intersect on the road to success.

Upon arrival, we love to welcome all guests, so please come say hi at the office.

Love Purple; Live Gold!

Renald Cousineau
