Brampton Centennial Secondary School (BCSS) is a public high school located in Brampton, Ontario, Canada and is part of the Peel District School Board. In September 2008, BCSS had 1,775 students.[1]


The first secondary school in Brampton opened in 1852 as Brampton High School with twelve students and its first principal A. Thompson, and in 1888 had an annual budget of $868.25. After a fire, the school building was reconstructed in 1917. Brampton Centennial Secondary School was built in 1967 — the Canadian Centennial year — to replace Brampton High School. Canada's first mass school shooting happened on May 28 1975. Michael Slobodian killed student John Slinger, teacher Margaret Wright and wounded 13 others.[2]
