Mark R. Isfeld Senior Secondary is a public high school in Courtenay, British Columbia, part of School District 71 Comox Valley.

History[edit]

The school opened as Courtenay Junior Middle School in 1991, but was renamed in October 2001 in honor of Master Corporal Mark Robert Isfeld, a Canadian soldier killed in Croatia in 1994 while serving as peacekeeper. Isfeld was known for distributing small knitted dolls made by his mother to children he met during his tours of duty.[2] It also became a high school, serving years 9 to 12. In the late 2000s this changed to 8–12 and an existing French immersion program moved to the school.[2]
