Our goal is to make the transition process from grade 8 to 9 as smooth as possible for all our students.  We also want to do our part to ensure our students feel welcome and well supported once they start their high school careers.  This involves a dedicated, diverse group of staff who, along with your classroom teachers, provide a variety of support roles and work closely as a team to look out for our Highlanders!
