Principal's Corner

The Colegio Bolivar High School can proudly boast our nearly perfect graduation rates and university acceptance. We continue to offer a rigorous academic program that ensures success at the university level and beyond. With the guidance of the High School staff, our students are able to realize their potential and begin to establish a vision of their future. As students progress in High School, we challenge them to make course selections based on their talents and future studies. By Grade 12, our students select half of their courses. This specificity can result in a more focused curriculum geared directly toward university goals and our students continuously take advantage of this opportunity.

Among many positive features of our program, the elective courses are a major component. The design of our High School is to provide a broad selection for students to help them identify their strengths and interests. Typically, electives are developed from student requests and are offered by core-area teachers in Secondary. Our list of electives has been in constant growth for the past decade. Below are the courses currently offered apart from our required curriculum.
