Mr. Daniel Chowne, Principal

Pattison High School is the exceptional institution where a talented faculty and an excellent staff support an internationally diverse community of learners, in the heart of Canada’s most beautiful city, to create educational experiences that build the foundations for a lifetime of success and reward.

The school celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013: It is young enough to be invigorating & old enough to provide a first class educational program for our students. It is here that the standards of excellence provide the stepping stones to acceptance among the best of North American universities and colleges.


Mr. Dave Rowbottom, Assistant Principal

I started working at Pattison High School in February 2005 and never looked back. The staff and students have always been supportive. I began as an English and Physical Education teacher and am now in an administrative role. This role enables me to understand the inner workings of the school environment, and take part in supporting students to make sound decisions that will lead to a successful future.  The small class sizes, trimester system and academic readiness program make it easier and faster for students to reach their goals. We strive for excellence and to provide a place where students’ needs are met, where they have the freedom to have their voices heard and where their imaginations are valued.
