At Haliburton Highlands Secondary School, our goal is to help each individual reach their fullest potential and become productive and participatory citizens of our school, community and planet. We promote the social, creative, moral, physical and intellectual development of all members of our school community. We aim to help our students acquire a variety of skills and knowledge, teach them to become critical and independent thinkers, and encourage the development of healthy lifestyle habits. We want our students to become active citizens who seek to have a positive impact on the social, cultural and natural environments and make educated and independent decisions tempered by values such as integrity, discipline and compassion.
