Principal's Message

Welcome to ADHS home of the Warriors!

Welcome to the website of Athens District High School in Athens, Ontario. ADHS is located at 21 Church Street, Athens Ontario. Athens District High School has been a key part of the local community for 137 years!

ADHS is home to 205 students from grades 7 to 12, and is a comprehensive high school offering courses in core subjects but also in classes like Art, Drama, Green Industries, Auto and Woodworking. Classes start at 8:05 and in Grades 9-12 we run on a five-period day including MSIP (multi-subject instructional period) schedule until 2:20. 

As a small high school we pride ourselves on providing a tailor made educational program for our students. We know our students as individuals, and are able to work with their strengths and needs to help them achieve the UCDSB goal of preparing all students for a successful life. As a result, the vast majority of students who attend Athens graduate on time with their peers, prepared for their next step – whether that be the world of work, college or university. To this end, we offer educational pathways for essential learning, college preparation and university preparation.

Like every school in the Upper Canada District School Board, Athens DHS is constantly working to improve the wellness and the learning of staff and students. As the principal, I believe that this ongoing commitment on the part of the teaching staff to a continuous cycle of improvement is an integral aspect of making ADHS a great place to learn. You can find the latest iteration of our SIPSAW plan here.

ADHS continually strives to build upon our past success and to assist our students in meeting their academic, social and emotional challenges as they prepare for graduation.

All the best,
