Welcome back to EDSS for the 2022 – 2023 school year!  Elmira District Secondary School is a vibrant secondary school offering a well-balanced program of arts, activities, athletics, and academics to the students living in Elmira and the surrounding townships.


The 2022 – 2023 school year once again brings a number of new staff members joining our grade nines and walking into EDSS for their first year and becoming part of the positive, energetic school community that is EDSS.  All students are invited to find their niche, become involved, active members of the EDSS school community. All EDSS students are offered opportunities to learn and grow socially, emotionally and physically as they undertake their high school years.


We look forward to opening the doors on September 4rth, welcoming returning and new Lancers and continuing the tradition of being a community secondary school that EDSS has been since opening its doors in 1939.


Parents are encouraged to use the school’s website and join School Day for updates on school activities and of course reach out to communicate with your child’s teacher(s), guidance counsellor and/or administrator at any point.


Mr. B. Marsh
