North Delta Secondary is a public high school in Delta, British Columbia, Canada. It is part of School District 37 Delta.

North Delta Secondary School, when it was opened in 1957, was originally a secondary school designed to accommodate approximately 550 students. At that time it was the second secondary school in Delta and eliminated the need for students in the north of Delta to walk south to Delta Senior Secondary in Ladner. It housed grade 8 to grade 12 students and continued to be a five-grade secondary school until 1975. In the early 1970s, due to new construction and population increases in the community, Burnsview Junior Secondary and Sands Junior Secondary joined Delview Junior Secondary as the three feeder schools to North Delta. Until the opening of Seaquam Secondary School in the Sunshine Hills area in 1977, all senior secondary students in the North Delta area were graduates of North Delta Secondary School.

In October 2003, after two years of major construction and renovation, NDSS had a ribbon-cutting ceremony that officially opened the new North Delta Secondary School. North Delta Secondary School is now capable of carrying an enrollment of 1350 students.[1]

The 2004-2005 school year marked the last year of North Delta Senior Secondary. Starting with the 2005-2006 school year, the school became known as North Delta Secondary, with the addition of grade 10s. This was followed with the subsequent addition of grade 8 and 9s in the following year.
