Oak Bay High School is a high school in the Greater Victoria School District and is located in Oak Bay, British Columbia, Canada. Up to 1,200 students attend in grades 9 to 12 in both regular and French immersion programs in two buildings, called East and West.[2]

History and facilities

The first high school in Oak Bay was opened in 1915 where the Oak Bay Municipal Hall now stands. However this school quickly became over-crowded and replaced by what is now the East Building at the school's present location on Cranmore Road in 1929. Oak Bay Junior High school was constructed on the west side of the school property opening in 1953. The two schools were amalgamated in the late 1970s.

When the province renamed all its high schools 'Secondary School', Oak Bay High School, Victoria High School, and Esquimalt High School were the only schools to retain 'High School' as part of their names.

In October, 2011 plans were announced to replace the existing school with a new $50 million facility to accommodate up to 1,300 students, including 100 international students, as well as a Neighbourhood Learning Centre.[3] The existing 1957-era gymnasium will be converted into a performing arts theatre with support space for both school and community use.[4] Construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2013.[5]

Athletics

Oak Bay has a large athletics program with its cross country and track and field serving as teams that the school identifies itself with. Oak Bay Secondary also hosts a rugby union team with a long running rivalry with St. Michaels University School. Oak Bay also has teams in soccer, basketball, volleyball, field hockey, badminton, tennis, cycling, and cricket.

Fine arts

Oak Bay has a Fine Arts program, including choirs, bands, a string orchestra and multiple dance troupes. Oak Bay Secondary puts on an annual musical production, run and performed by the senior students. Oak Bay High School also hosts an arts program, including, from 1996–2006, the Oak Bay Community Theatre.
