Student Success

Every student learns in his or her own way.

Ontario's high schools are working with communities, employers, colleges, universities and training centres to offer more ways than ever to help students focus on their interests and support their learning.

This means meeting the needs, interests and strengths of all students, engaging them in learning and better preparing them for graduation and beyond.
