Welcome to Pattison High School. We are proud of our ongoing strong school culture, and best instructional practices to move every student each day along a pathway of success. Our high excellence standard provides our students with a strong foundation for admission to top ranked North American universities, and universities around the world. Pattison High School is unique, offering students the opportunity to earn a Canadian High School Graduation Diploma in a time frame that allows for 12 course completion in a year.

When students leave Pattison High School, they leave with the confidence, skills and responsibility to make their mark in diverse academic pursuits and professional pathways. We look forward to welcoming you into the Pattison tradition, and we will strive to ensure that our scholars have a transformational, enjoyable, and successful academic career with us, and in their future pursuits.


Mr. Michael Powell M.A.



As the Vice Principal of Pattison High School, it is with great pleasure that I openly welcome all of our students to share, discuss, question and pursue both their academic paths, as well as their personal goals. Our school motto is “We don’t teach a class; we teach individual students in a class”, and this is never more true as each individual reaches out to discuss their own very particular needs and goals.

My extensive background in education, over 20 years working with international students, and my Masters in Education, provides me with the patience, sincerity and skills in which to help guide each of our students. It is essential to me that our students feel safe, comfortable, respected and appreciated within the PHS community.

In association with our strong, compassionate, and understanding team of teachers, advisors and staff, each day brings the joy and the challenges of academic, personal growth and career objectives and it is my honour to be involved and included in this very special part of our student’s lives.

I welcome our students to communicate and discuss their current situations and future goals. I wish them all much success and growth in all their endeavours and am here to support and motivate them to strive for and reach their own ambitions. Seeing students succeed both socially and educationally has always been a strong passion of mine and I look forward to working with them during this important time in their lives.


Ms. Erin Pettinger

Vice Principal
