Osgoode Township High School is an Ottawa-Carleton District School Board high school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located in the rural town of Metcalfe. The school was opened in 1954 as part of the Carleton Board of Education. It joined the new OCDSB in 1998 when the Carleton Board of Education merged with the Ottawa Board of Education. The school's motto 'Semper d altiora nitamur' means 'Always, we strive for higher'.
There is a strong music program at OTHS. The school has both a concert and a jazz band and allows students to join for pleasure or to earn academic credits.
Despite its small size, the school has a strong athletics program. It has had successful ventures in both boys and girls curling, girls basketball and hockey, jr. girl's touch football, rowing, track, girls rugby, and boys rugby, bringing several teams to OFSAA in recent years.
