The school’s administration team is led by Brad Stokes along with his vice-principals: Kevin Carver, Sean Bennett and Jodye Routledge. The athletic team is the ‘Griffins’. There are approximately 1000 students enrolled in grades 9–12 at the school.

Our Mission

Horton High School provides learners with opportunities to gain proficiency in the Essential Graduation Learnings of Aesthetic Expression, Citizenship, Communication, Personal Development, Problem Solving, and Technological Competence. To achieve a well-rounded education, the educational partners encourage flexibility, understanding, and involvement in meeting the challenges of the 21st Century.

Our History

Horton High School sits on a 42-acre hillside site overlooking the Minas Basin and the farms and orchards of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. The 1000-student facility features leading-edge technology and has been called the “finest secondary school in the province and country.” It was built in 1998, using public-private sector partnering and the involvement of the community to create a state-of-the-art facility.

Horton was delighted to be visited by Fred Fox, Terry's older brother, who presented special T-shirts to three of our cancer survivors plus a lovely book for our school library. This year's Terry Fox run at Horton takes place on September 28. Hopefully you are able to lend your support to an event that now includes 34 countries! #terryfoxrun
