Chestermere High School is a public high school near Chestermere, Alberta, Canada. About 900 students were enrolled at this school before Grade 9 was removed in 2010 to reduce overcrowding. Currently, there are about 700 students. The school features three parking lots, one for grades 10 and 11, one for 11 and 12, and a special one for the staff. One of the baseball diamonds was constructed by a teacher and his detention students.

The school was originally 2 separate schools, an elementary school and the other for grades 7-12. After an elementary school and middle school were erected in Chestermere, the two schools were joined by a link (hallway) the school was became a senior high school. The link was torn down and renovated in 2008 due to mould in the link.

There has only been one serious violent incident at the school. Two students got into a fight over a girl, one received hospitalizing injuries and died as a result shortly after. The Braydon Hartyoung Memorial was established in September 2013 to acknowledge his active participation to improve Chestermere High School.[2][3] A bench made of hockey sticks was made for the school in memory of the student.
