Principal's Message

Welcome to NGDHS home of the Knights!

Welcome to the website of North Grenville District High School in Kemptville, Ontario. NGDHS is located in our new home at 2605 Concession Road. Although we are in a new building, North Grenville DHS has been serving the growing community of Kemptville and the surrounding area in the northern region of Grenville County since 1936! NGDHS is home to approximately 900 students from grades 7 to 12, and is a comprehensive high school offering courses in core subjects but also in Art, Music, Drama, Communications Technology, Auto and Woodworking, as well as after school for credit classes in Drama and African Drumming. Classes start at 8:00 and in Grades 9-12 we run on a five period MSIP (multi-subject instructional period) schedule until 2:10.

As a teaching staff, we strive to provide our students with customized learning opportunities with the primary goal of preparing them for the world of work, college and higher education should they so choose. To this end, we offer educational pathways for essential learning, college preparation and university preparation.

As a reflection of the Upper Canada District School Board’s Strategic Plan, we have implemented an intervention strategy to get 90% of our students to graduate with their peers by the year 2020. In order to achieve such a goal we are constantly improving our delivery model based on several core beliefs. We believe that improving the quality of instruction will result in improved student learning. We believe increasing the quality of instruction is grounded in understanding and building capacity around purpose, rigour, engagement and results. We believe every adult must be continually learning and improving his/her professional practices.

Students at North Grenville District High School excel in National academic competitions, acceptance to university and college programs, as well as extra curricular activities such as Athletics, Drama, and Music.

NGDHS continually strives to build upon our past success and to assist our students in meeting the academic, social and emotional challenges as they prepare for graduation. We are pleased about your interest in North Grenville District High School, and invite you to become a part of our school community.
