As the bell sounds at precisely 8:05am, students have around five minutes to organize their books and go to their first period class. The staff is very diligent on order within the classroom. All students (not dependant on the difficulty level of class) can expect an efficient learning and working environment. When students take lunch break, grades 9-12 (Grade 8 with signed note from parent) are free to leave the school to eat at many of the close in proximity restaurants such as Dairy Queen, A&W, Tim Hortons, Chip Stands, as well as Giant Tiger and Quickie. They are expected to be back in time for their third period class.
 
 
After and during the school day concludes at 2:08 pm, students have the opportunity to participate in many extra-curricular activities.
