Jennifer Ference, Assistant Principal
Fort Saskatchewan High School, “Home of the Sting”, has an excellent range of programming that meets the needs of over 425 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. Fort High graduates are prepared for life after high school. They have strong foundational skills which provide the tools for success in the years to come.
Our school is dedicated to developing and maximizing each student's potential. Our staff consists of nearly 30 teachers working full or part-time, and 15 classified personnel. 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.
