Welcome to Gladstone Secondary School
Gladstone Secondary School is a community of learners dedicated to providing young people with opportunities to prepare themselves for complex and changing futures.

Principal: Christopher Parker
Gladstone opened as a junior high school in 1950 with an enrollment of 1376 students. Mr. D.B. Mackenzie, who was Gladstone's first principal, opened the sliding gym doors to symbolize the opening of the school at a ceremony attended by all staff members and students. From the opening year in 1950, Gladstone added a grade each year until the first class graduated in 1954. Since then, many students have been through Gladstone's doors. The school's motto and crest were chosen as a result of contests. The motto, "Fide et Virtute", which translates to "By Faith and By Courage", has become an inspiration to Gladstone. It is the family motto of William Ewart Gladstone, after whom the school was named.

Keep a folder for each subject so you can easily pack and find things. Staying organized in school is extremely important because if you are organized, you are one step ahead in being successful. A good way to start off is to keep a folder for each subject.
This means putting your math papers in your math folder, your Language Arts papers in your Language Arts folder, your science papers in your science folder, and so on.
Use colour coding or label your folders and place them into either your desk or backpack neatly. This way, you will have an easier time searching for your folders and will have more time to review what you have learned yesterday.
If you like, you can also place bookmarks in all of your folders to make them easier to be found when you take your folders home.
