Prince George Secondary School is a public high school in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, part of School District 57 Prince George. It has been at its present campus since 1968.


For Grade 12 writers, the prize with the most prestige in the province may be the $1,500 first place award in University of British Columbia's Faculty of Arts essay contest. In 2000, out of 2,600 entries on the subject of Justice, the winner was Prince George's Alayna van Leeuwen.[1]

Health and safety[edit]

160 students are trained in Cardiopulmonary resuscitation each year.[2]


A school bus taking students home was hijacked on February 13, 1990 with 13 students taken hostage. They were released unharmed. The three youths who carried out the hijacking were armed with sawed-off rifles.[3][4]
