Our Learning Story
Our learning community is located on the Traditional Territory of the Syilx Okanagan people.
Welcome to Rutland Senior Secondary school. RSS is an exceptional place for students and staff. The amazing students, staff and diverse courses we offer are what make RSS a special place to work and learn as we continue to
shift from a teaching culture to a culture based on Learning.
We do this by using the 'Spirals of Inquiry' as a tool to gather information and use this information to make informed decisions. We ask our students
questions about their experiences in school and the patterns that emerge from
drive the work we do in our school.
RSS students are actively involved in the school through many curricular and extra-curricular activities. Our students are active in academic programs such as Advanced Placement and the core academics. Others excel in our extensive applied skills, modern languages and fine arts programs. Our athletic teams have a rich history of excellence. Everyday at RSS our students can be seen engaged and active in their learning.
The 178 staff, including 4 Administrators, 96 Teachers, 54 Education Assistants, 9 Clerical and 5 Custodial members, along with other community support staff, are proud to work at Rutland Senior Secondary. Teachers are constantly exploring new ways to teach the academic subjects and help meet students' needs. Our elective teachers are always creating new courses based on students' interests and needs. Teachers are available to help students and to communicate in various ways with parents to address any concerns.
