Welcome to ODSS!

Orangeville District Secondary School

Home of NGWEDWE, our friendly bear mascot

Call the school at 519-941-0491, ext. 221 to set up a virtual appointment or have any questions answered

You are also welcome to e-mail the school at [email protected] – we will forward your inquiry to the appropriate person.

While it’s difficult this year to provide you with a tour of the school, we have some videos which may help you become more familiar with us.  Please view them when you have a few minutes!  Thanks to our Leadership class for their help with putting them together.  If conditions allow, we will arrange for orientation and visits to the school to learn about the different areas of study from academics and sports to music and art.  Learn why ODSS is the best school around.  Go Bears!

(We recommend you use Google Chrome as your browser when watching the videos)

While many of these videos focus on the Grade 9 program, if you are joining us from another school in Grade 10, 11 or 12 we are happy to have you join us as well!  Hopefully these videos will help introduce you to the school and you can see some of the great things that happen here every day!
