Sir Wilfrid Laurier Secondary School is part of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and it is located in the neighbourhood of Fallingbrook, in the suburb of Orleans, in Ottawa Ontario, Canada. Since 2009, the school's principal has been Ruggles Pritchard.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier was originally located on Carson Road in western Gloucester. The original students came primarily from the Carson Road and Pineview neighbourhoods. During the 80s and early 90s, students from Fallingbrook in Orleans were bussed to the school. Eventually, the entire school was home to students bussed from Orleans while a new campus was built at its current location on 10th Line Road. After moving to the new location, students from Pineview/Carson Road attended Gloucester High School and the building was eventually purchased by the French Catholic school board as the new home for Collège Catholique Samuel-Genest.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier is one of the schools that broadcasts its morning announcements on television, formerly called "WilTV", and now called "Laurier Live!" In 2011 the school conducted a trip for students to Las Vegas to attend the National Association of Broadcasters convention.
