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'.

Catchment area[edit]

The student body is drawn from the communities of Greely, Osgoode, Metcalfe, Carlsbad, Vernon, Edwards, Kenmore, portions of Manotick and the area surrounding these communities.
