It first opened its doors in 1996, and currently serves a community of just over 1100 students. The school operates based on a college system, which separates students based on their grade and allots them a specific group of teachers and classrooms.[1] A strong emphasis on technology is also encouraged.[2]

The front archway was deported from the former Central Collegiate Institute, the first high school in the city.

The school also has a successful commercial kitchen which helps trains students into the food industry. The kitchen/cafeteria is called Winston's.

Current feeder elementary schools include Centennial School, George Lee School, Henry Janzen School, MacNeill School, and W.H. Ford School.
