student life

Connect with your peers through our house system

Students and teachers are assigned randomly to one of five houses: Fox (named after Terry Fox), Peterson (named after Oscar Peterson), Richard (named after Maurice "The Rocket" Richard), Stowe (named after Dr. Emily Stowe), and McCrae (named after Lt Col John McCrae).

Students remain a member of their assigned house until they graduate from Rosemount High School. Each house is run by a House Captain, who is assisted by 3 House Vice-Captains. The selection of House Leaders takes place at the end of each school year for the following year, a process that involves an interview with each applicant as well as a review of their academic records. These student leadership positions are advised and mentored by teachers who have volunteered to act as advisors to the House Council. Points are accumulated by each House throughout the year from house games and competitions, and the house with the most points at the end of each academic year is awarded the House Cup.

Shape your extra-curricular experience

Rosemount understands the importance of extra-curricular activities in a teenager's overall education and school experience and strongly encourages all students to get involved in the life of the school beyond the classroom.

Every year, there are a number of outings organized by different committees in the school. Though they vary form year to year, recent years have seen grad trips to New York, a Music trip to Europe, a school-wide outing to a Cabane-A-Sucre, a Spring Break trip to Italy, Ski trips as well as many local class outings.

At any school-organized event or trip, always remember that the students are acting as representatives of Rosemount High School. As such, students are expected to conduct themselves accordingly at all times inside and outside the school.

Reach your goals and grow your wings

Rosemount students can take advantage of youth-oriented award programs, scholarships and travel opportunities. With the help and guidance of school staff and teachers, our students can live their dreams and reach their goals.

Founded in 1956 by Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, the DoE’s Award is an exciting self-development program available to all young people ages 14-24 equipping them with life skills to make a difference to themselves, their communities and the world.
