About Us

Though the original Two Hills District and Two Hills School was built circa 1909, the first school on the present location was built in 1950. In 1961, Two Hills School was divided into two separate schools the elementary and high schools, and remained two distinct buildings until the 2005 renovations were completed and the K-12 students were once again in one school. With the closure of Hairy Hill School in 1982, centralization of Willingdon high school students in 1984, and the eventual closing of Willingdon School in 1992, Two Hills School serves many students who travel from smaller communities in the surrounding area.

 

Presently, Two Hills School is a K-12 school with an enrolment of 200 students, offering all regular academic programs,  daily physical education (40 minutes/day) in grades 1-9 with all high school students given the opportunity to take PE 10, 20, 30, an art program for elementary, and high school students, and music for K-6 students. In high school, full academic programming, as well as a variety of complimentary/core courses via ADLC or in-house/independent/alternative scheduling (Forensicsm, Psychology, Science 30, CTS courses in Agriculture, Communication ...), is offered. There are also Dual Credit courses available in partnership with Portage College and Lakeland College. High school students can earn credits in the area of CTS, Off-Campus Education, Green Certificate Program, RAP, and Work Experience.   Because we are cycling  Chemistry 20/30, Physics 20/30,  in high school, acceptable class sizes are maintained, giving  all students  better opportunity to take more courses that can be applied to the Rutherford Scholarship.

 

Student have excellent counselling and support services with a full time FSLW counsellor (Miss Eryn MacDonald) and  a division career counsellor  (Ms. Deborah Mandrusiak) is here periodically to meet with every high school student.   Student council, comprised of members from grades 7-12 initiate, plan, and implement numerous cross-grade activities to promote school spirit, establish relationships among students of different ages, and enhance the culture of a K-12 school. As well, athletic endeavors are popular throughout the grades: intramurals, extra-curricular team sports, activity day challenges.  Elementary clubs and peer support groups at lunch time (cooking, games, crafts, etc.) have been organized to strengthen relationships and socializing skills.  This year our high school students are looking forward to participating in an international school trip to France and Spain in the spring with EF Tours!

 

We take  great pride in continued academic excellence and athletic achievements, while building, maintaining, and strengthening relationships with students, parents, and community partners.
