Principal's Message

Welcome to our website!

As the 15th Principal of Nepean High School, I wish to acknowledge that our school is built on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin territory, and I thank the Algonquin First Nation, as the traditional custodians of this land, for welcoming us.  In the spirit of reconciliation, I acknowledge my role in forging a future that is respectful and inclusive of their role in our history.

Currently in its 98th year of operation, Nepean High School prides itself on its strong commitment to student well-being and excellence in academics, arts, and athletics.  We have a tremendous legacy of giving back to our community through charity events and fundraising activities, several of which are student-led and organized. In addition, our caring and committed team of teachers, educational assistants, administrative personnel and custodial staff demonstrate on a daily basis that our students and community are well-supported and served.

As Principal of Nepean High School, it is my goal for all students to know that their presence in school is valued and welcome every day.  I am committed to ensuring that their learning experiences are equitable, transformative, and grounded in kindness, creativity, and enthusiasm.  It is my sincere hope that both students and parents alike feel empowered to communicate with me as to how we can continue to make Nepean a great place to be for everyone, every day.

Finally, I encourage all members of our school community to follow along with our daily educational adventures through our Twitter feed: @NHS_Info.
