We, the Shawinigan High School community (students, parents and staff) are committed to academic excellence. We believe the student will attain academic excellence, the achievement of one's personal best, through patience, perseverance, and participation. We also believe that the staff and parents can aid in the attainment of academic excellence through cooperation, collaboration, and caring. Together, we can do it! The following beliefs and values are the pillars of our community:
Respect -- We believe every person has the right to be respected but also the obligation to respect themselves, others and property
Community -- We believe in a caring, open, and friendly environment and in a place where everyone can learn.
Spirit -- We believe in promoting pride by celebrating our community, our efforts and our accomplishments.
Success -- We believe that excellence is defined by the achievement of one's personal best and we encourage all of our members to reach their fullest potential.
