The city of Regina is changing, growing and Regina Public Schools is changing, as well, to meet the needs of all students.
The School Division has introduced a strategy that is meant to give all high school students
- Greater access quality, diverse courses and extracurricular programs at neighbourhood high schools;
- Enhanced, neighbourhood access to more specialized programming for French Immersion as well as Advanced Placement and Locally Modified Courses
- Programming options at various collegiates including Martin Academy, Balfour Arts Collective and the Learning and Re-engagement Centre
- Specific program options for students with intensive support needs
- Access to Campus Regina Public course for all Grades 11 and 12 students, no matter what high school they attend.

High school program offerings tend to be driven by how many students attend a school – more students, more options. For schools with lower enrolments, that means certain program offerings that are available at schools with larger enrolments might not be available.
Regina Public Schools believes that all students should have equitable opportunities, regardless of where they live or go to high school and is committed to increasing access to programming for all students at their neighbourhood high school.
After years of declining enrolment, projections are that, like the growth in the city, growth is also occurring in high schools.
The high school strategy is created to ensure that these students can go to high schools that not only have the programs they seek, but that also have the room for them to learn, grow and succeed!
Family of Neighbourhood Schools
Making learning an equitable experience in all our high schools begins with working with elementary schools to help create a sense of community between elementary schools and their neighbourhood high school. This:
- Builds deep connections between elementary schools and the neighborhood high school
- Supports a more effective transition from elementary to high school for students
- Creates a predictable Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12 pathway for students
- Enhances opportunities for ongoing programming interactions
- Provides enhanced academic opportunities
- Allows the School Division to manage enrolment growth across all high school facilities; and
- Creates better balance in extracurricular programming for all high schools
What does the Family of Schools and high school strategy mean to you?
Regina Public School families will need to be aware of the elementary and high school boundaries. For a complete boundary directory, click here.
Elementary schools will align with their neighbourhood schools. This means that elementary schools will have a designated high school. Where a student goes to high school will be determined by that student's home address. Click here for chart.
There are some exceptions relating to parents requesting schools that are not the designated neighbourhood high school. Read more here.
