Principal’s Message

EDSS has been around for 77 wonderful years and is a true community secondary school.   In 2013-2014, we celebrated EDSS’s 75th Anniversary with a fabulous 75th Reunion.

Since opening in 1939, EDSS has provided a secondary education for students living in Elmira and the surrounding townships.   Today, it is a vibrant school, offering numerous opportunities for all students – both in and out of the classroom.    The staff at EDSS strive to work with all students, challenging each student to be the best they can be.

During the year 2017-2018,  EDSS staff will support our students by continuing to develop and provide effective descriptive feedback for students.  Research has consistently shown that such feedback improves student achievement.

As a school, we encourage and value communication between the students, teachers, and parents/guardians.   Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher(s) and/or administration at any time.


Mr. B. Marsh
