Eastside Secondary School Graduation: June 29, 2022
ESS is proud of the graduating class of 2022. This extraordinary group of students is the first cohort to have begun, and concluded, all four years of their high school careers at Eastside Secondary School. They have managed unprecedent circumstances that have made learning and growing a challenge, yet have persevered and emerged at the end of their Grade 12 year as successful, creative people ready to represent ESS well in the world. We love to see you soar, Ravens!

Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test Spring Administration 2022
Over the next few weeks, approximately 200 Eastside students will be working on their Literacy Graduation Requirement by writing the Ontario Secondary School Literacy Test (OSSLT). Some students are completing the test with their Grade 10 English classes. A number of students not enrolled in Grade 10 English this quadmester will be completing the test on April 27th. These students have already received communications via their school @apps email accounts.
Eastside Secondary School wishes students and their families a safe, restful and happy March Break. We look forward to seeing students again on March 21st to resume Quadmester 3.
