"Highland Secondary School' is a secondary school located in Comox, British Columbia, Canada in School District 71. The school opened in 1978 and educates approximately 1200 students annually in grades 8–12. The school's sports teams all go by the name of the Highland Raiders.

Students are separated into two different school houses, which are colour-coded as gold and blue respectively. Each house has their own advisory system made up of groups whose names correspond to their colour and number (G-15, B-6,etc.). Every student attends their advisory group ("AG") for 10 minutes daily after their first class.

As of 2012 the International Baccalaureate (IB) program was implemented into the school; this program is intended to introduce high school students to the learning challenges, and outcomes of post-secondary institutions. Although IB is labour-intensive, it creates a learning atmosphere, and creates lifelong friends among the students. [1]
