White Oaks Secondary School
1330 Montclair Drive, Oakville
The school has north and south campuses, across the road from each other. The north campus was formerly known as General Wolfe High School, and used to be attended by students who had different levels and types of learning capabilities than those of the south campus. The school now acts as a whole, and students can take classes at North or South campus – the old division between the schools is gone.
The north campus offers hands-on technical programs such as hairdressing, child care, autobody and carpentry, as well as classes for students with a wide range of disabilities, and English Language Learner programs (ELL), and is the location for recognized Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Programs (OYAP) and the Ford Academy of Manufacturing Sciences (FAMS).
White Oaks also offers French at the immersion level, and offers the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. In the Fraser Institute’s report on Ontario schools for the 2012-2013 year, the school was ranked 39 out of 740 secondary schools with an overall rating of 8.3/10.
