About Ancaster High school

Welcome to Ancaster High school

Ancaster has a lot of departments, one of them is Co-operative Education. This curriculum is based on the belief that students will learn valuable employment skills through practical work experiences. Students will gain confidence in their abilities to work with others in real workplace experience. Students will become better citizens in their community and beyond by making connections with those who are making their community a better place. So students will complete their storefront presentations as a culminating activity for this course.

The other important department of Ancaster is the Math Department, here is the name and E-mail of some the teachers who teach there:

The Mathematics Department at Ancaster High School offers plenty of opportunities for students to develop to their fullest potential. We have a very knowledgeable and energetic department that is eager to assist. In the classroom, students will be involved with everything from ‘hands-on’ activities to the use of calculators, computers, SmartBoards and some of Ancaster newest technology…iPads and Apple TV. This is an exciting time for both the students and Ancaster department as they engage in learning and interacting together with this new and exciting technology.

Students will also have an opportunity to participate in a series of math contests that come from the University of Waterloo. These contests are designed to allow students a chance to test their knowledge, understanding, and problem-solving abilities. Contests begin at the grade nine level and continue to senior year.
