Each semester approximately 175 honour students were recognized.
In 2014, an announcement was made to amalgamate Midland SS and Penetanguishene SS .This decision was made due to the declining enrollment of both schools. PSS closed at the end of the 2015-16 school year, its 400 students joined the 600 students at the existing MSS building, which can accommodate up to 1,400 students, while construction of the new school takes place. Construction is expected to begin as soon as the ground has thawed in the spring of 2016, with the opening of the new school in September 2018.
Students at the school are involved in Student Council initiatives; international student exchanges; co-curricular programs associated with music, art, and drama; a variety of special interest clubs; and athletics.
GBDSS is located in area 1 of the school board, the superintendent is Stuart Finlayson.
