Welcome to Fort High!
Fort Saskatchewan High School, “Home of the Sting”, has an excellent range of programming that meets the needs of students from urban Fort Saskatchewan and surrounding rural communities. We are a “Full Program” high school with a strong tradition of academic excellence coupled with the opportunity to excel in Fine Arts and Athletics.
Our school is dedicated to developing and maximizing each student's potential. We are large enough to provide a wide range of academic, athletic, and social activities, yet small enough to maintain a warm, personal, and safe school environment. Many of our student’s parents are Fort High Graduates.
Course registrations take place on the following dates:
- Grade 12: August 27, 9 a.m. - 11:30 p.m.
- Grade 11: August 27, 12:30 p.m. - 3 p.m.
- Grade 10: August 28, 9 a.m. - 11:30 p.m.
- New registrants: August 28, 12:30 - 3 p.m. & August 29, 9 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., by appointment only

Purchasing school materials? Before you shop, check your child’s school supply list.
Tools for School
If you’re a parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies, we can help. EIPS has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2018-19 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in kindergarten to Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, the backpacks are respectfully distributed to students who’ve order them. To place an order, contact the EIPS Central Administration office at 780-464-3477.
Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30 days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is by logging in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal and clicking on "Student Fees." If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees, you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
All families using EIPS Student Transportation services for the 2018-19 school year have received a tentative route schedule and the applicable invoice—transportation fees can be paid online by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal or at the EIPS Student Transportation office.
Haven’t registered for Student Transportation yet? There’s still time.
Contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.
Bus passes and updated route information are mailed to families in August.
Still have questions about school startup?
We look forward to a great year ahead and seeing all of our students back on September 4!
