Ecole Oxford School is a Canadian school in the West End of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The school's current principal is Don Reardon. The previous principal was Joe Morrison, former principal of Highland Park Junior High. Currently, both French and English programs are offered at the school, with integration between classes in Math and English classes.[1]

Sport teams[edit]

The school plays host to multiple sport teams:

  • Volleyball
  • Basketball
  • Badminton
  • Soccer
  • Track and field
  • Cross country
  • Softball
  • Hockey

Attempted Closure[edit]

On June 14, 2016, parents and students of Oxford stood outside school doors protesting the recommendations by a volunteer council to close the school.[2] Complaints against closing the school mainly revolved around nearby French immersion students wanting to attend the school's French immersion program. Many parents were surprised by the recommendation by the council, and some students were sad that they would not be able to complete their education at the school.
