Central Etobicoke High School (or Central Etobicoke, CEHS, formerly Westway High School) is a secondary school located at 10 Denfield Street, bordered by Widdicombe Hill Blvd to the South and Clement Rd to the North in the Richview neighbourhood of Etobicoke in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. There are four course levels offered: Essential, Workplace, Open and K. It is also governed by the Etobicoke Board of Education that was transferred over to the Toronto District School Board after 1997.
Westway High School opened its doors as a small high school in 1969 by the Etobicoke Board of Education with a high quality, unique, and alternative curriculum for students who wish to attain the skills, values and attitudes that will prepare them for work, lifelong learning and participation in community life.
As enrolment decreased in Etobicoke's public schools during the 1980s, many seriously underpopulated public schools in the area were abandoned as the children were transferred to the Catholic school system when full funding was introduced. As a result, Central Etobicoke High School was formed in 1988 at the same site and assimilated its basic level programs at Westway, Humbergrove Secondary School and Kingsmill Secondary School, with both of the latter schools closed and transferred to the Metropolitan Separate School Board (now the Toronto Catholic District School Board).
