How can I find out a student’s home school?

Visit Tri-Board Student Transportation and enter your address to determine a student’s home school.

Where can I go to access more information about school events and important dates?

Secondary school websites include Grade 8 to 9 transition information that is particular to each individual school including specific events and important dates.

Can students start their Community Service (volunteer) Hours before they start high school?

Students are able to start their hours the summer after they graduate from Grade 8 and before they begin high school. Learn more about Community Service Hours.

What do I do if my student is planning on attending a school outside their neighbourhood boundary?

Make sure that your student registers at their home high school first. They can apply to another school’s waiting list, but will not find out if they are eligible to transfer until after the first week of school in September.

What is the Grade 9 EQAO Math test?

This is a standardized test that measures students’ competence in the mathematics curriculum at the Grade 9 level compared with other students from across the province. The test runs two times per year and does not count towards graduation requirements. A portion of the mark may be used as part of the student’s final grade.
