West Credit Secondary School is a high school in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. It is a workplace destination for the Peel District School Board. Its cousin school, Judith Nyman Secondary School is a high school in Brampton, Ontario, Canada that offers similar trades courses. West Credit and Judith Nyman are currently the only two vocational schools in the Peel District School Board and offer students more choices in trades courses than most other Peel high schools. It is aimed for students who want to pursue a career in the trades, or sometimes it is recommended for those with learning developmental disabilities. Both high schools offer vocational and applied level courses. Students can participate in programs leading to apprenticeship and can work towards their required apprenticeship courses and training upon completing their Ontario Secondary School Diplomas.

West Credit Secondary School has been criticized in the past for lack of action by school administrators with regard to bullying incidents. A Grade 10 student, Lindsay Hyde, was forced to transfer to another school after her bullying ordeal was reported on torontosun.com and canoe.ca in February 2009.[1]
