St. Paul Secondary School was originally built in 1971 as a Junior High School, with grades 7 to 10. The first principal of the school was Al Rasavy. St. Paul evolved into a full high school in 1985. The school now consists of grades 9 to 12. John Watts was the principal during this time. St. Paul's now has approximately 800 students with the current principal being Paul Schmidt. The cultural backgrounds in the area are rich in Polish, Italian and Portuguese working-class families.
In 1992, the Broad-Based Technology Pavilion was added to the school. The Pavilion housed a communications centre (complete with a TV studio and editing room), a photography lab, a drafting centre and a construction centre. This paradigm shift was due in part to Principal Gail Arena. Staff and students were relocated to the Streetsville Holding School from September 2001 to June 2002, while expansion and renovations were taking place in the school. We moved back to the new St. Paul in September 2002. Principal Paul O'Meara and Vice Principal Ed McMahon kept the "Omnia Cum Corde" or "Everything With Heart" motto alive!
The St. Paul Secondary School Blessing and Rededication took place on Wednesday, June 4, 2003. Father Timothy Hanley, Pastor of St. Dominic's Parish, presided over the solemn blessing. St. Paul's is located within St. Dominic's Parish in the Archdiocese of Toronto, and is the high school for St. Dominic, St. Timothy, St. Edmund, St. James, and Queen of Heaven Elementary schools.
The school mascot is the Wolverine, and the school sports teams take the same name.
