    Welcome to South Carleton High School

    Our school is located in the southwestern sector of the City of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada in the village of Richmond (see map).

    For over a half century South Carleton High School has been recognized for continued academic and athletic excellence. The school opened its doors in 1952 to 263 students and 13 teachers. Today, we have a student population of approximately 1100, with almost 70 teaching staff. In the intervening years, thousands of students and staff have passed through the halls and classrooms of South Carleton High School.

    Though many things about South Carleton HS have been transformed by time, our commitment to excellence continues to endure steadfast into the twenty-first century.

    South Carleton High School operates under the jurisdiction of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board.

    Our Mission Statement

    South Carleton High School is a caring, community school. Our team of staff, students, parents and community promote a sharing, inclusive and welcoming environment. We respect the individual, honour our traditions, encourage daily excellence, and prepare students for their future.
