We have many excellent schools in the Peel District School Board. If you are making the decision about what area to move to, it is important to consider the type of community or neighbourhood that would best meet your family's needs. Once you have identified two or three possible communities within Peel that meet your needs, then look at the school(s) for each area. Contacting each school directly for more information about what they offer will give you more information on which to base your final decision. You can also attend an information night during the fall to learn more about what is offered your local secondary school.

Visit school websites for an overview of what you can expect at each site, and look them up on Twitter--many of our secondary schools have a vibrant Twitter account that gives you a glimpse into their day-to-day​​​.
