About Magee Secondary School

Welcome to Magee Secondary School

Magee began in 1912 with nine students in a small, upstairs room in the four-room Eburne Superior School in Marpole, the site of the present-day David Lloyd George School. Thus began the first high school class in Point Grey. The fall of 1913 saw the school move to its present-day site at the corner of 49th Avenue and Maple street. At first, Magee served all of Point Grey from Marpole, Shaughnessy and Dunbar. In total, twelve thousand one hundred and seventy-seven acres of the municipality were served by the one high school, and during its first year at the present site, thirty-one students were in attendance. The next school in the area was built in 1917 when the eight-room Point Grey opened.

Plans and Values:

Magee’s Skills Development Centre is unparalleled in its successes through a highly respected Peer tutoring program and the promotion of independent learning and help students with significant difficulty in one or more basic academic skills. The Centre is especially unique as a place where all students congregate, regardless of achievement and ability.

Magee Secondary offers a comprehensive array of extra-curricular opportunities to continue student learning beyond the classroom walls through participation in clubs and three seasons of athletics. Magee’s clubs permit students to follow their interest in many topics including service, environmental awareness and sustainability, global citizenship and animal rights.

Magee has a very active and involved parent community. They value education. Not only do they hold regular meetings with current educational topics on the agenda but parents have also been very involved in fundraising. Parents are involved as advocates for their children and maintain close communication with the teachers and other staff.


Dedicate a certain area of your room or home for supplies. Keeping all of your writing utensils, folders, paper, and other necessities in one area will make it easier to locate them. If you don’t have a desk, get one and have a drawer for each group of items.
For example, one drawer can be dedicated to writing utensils, another can hold hole punchers and staplers, and a third can store extra printer paper, journals, and folders.
If you don’t have a desk with drawers, use table-top paper racks, pencil holders, shoe boxes, and/or storage bins to keep like items together.
