At Pattison High School, students are exposed to a plethora of experiences that assist greatly in developing a comprehensive education. Students from around the world gather at PHS to pursue their dreams and aspirations while enriching their lives in the cultural mosaic reflective of our society. Students immerse themselves in their studies that include opportunities that occur outside the classroom. At PHS, a well-rounded experience includes getting outside the classroom walls to indulge in the various resources that the Vancouver Metropolitan area provides. Student activity days, field trips, and field studies add to the rich educational environment. Social interactions and group leadership activities enrich the students’ life experiences. Thus, a PHS student becomes a more global citizen ready to contribute to the world.
Living in a foreign country, I feel that Pattison became my new home. I really love the small classes in which all the teachers get to know every student very well. In here, I have met many people from different counties, which greatly enriched my life. Every teacher is fair to all the students, and for every question you ask you can get the answer immediately. I really want to thank Pattison for providing a path to a successful future.

I came to Pattison a few years ago. I have found more than I had bargained for. The teachers are all extremely dedicated, they seem almost tireless and despite their endless efforts to help us improve. Here at Pattison, I find myself in a safe, warm and comfortable atmosphere. Staff, teachers and my peers are wonderful and welcoming. Pattison is like my second family while I am away from home. I truly love it here.

When I first came to Pattison High School it was in the middle of the semester. I had just moved to Canada and no school would accept me because I was almost 18 and that would put me in the adult program. Pattison was like a friendly and multi-cultural community and all the staff and teachers were really welcoming and close to the students. I even met people here that are now some of my best friends. The school also helped me a lot with my courses and my credit transfers, considering I didn’t kn…
