April 28, 2016

TDstudents_web.jpgTommy Douglas Collegiate is Saskatoon Public Schools' newest high school and is part of the Blairmore Integrated Facility that brings together Saskatoon Public Schools, the City of Saskatoon, and the city's separate school division in partnership to provide that offers exciting opportunities for our students and serves as a destination centre for city residents.

Programming at Tommy Douglas provide unique learning opportunities to all students. We offer a broad-based curricular program that allows students countless choices in electives, including Dance, Musical Theatre, Band, Digital Photography, Visual Arts and Practical and Applied Arts.

We also offer enriched and honours programs leading to optional Advanced Placement courses during a student's Grade 12 year. Functional Living Skills (FLS) offers programming for young adults with special needs. Our Tiger Softball Academy provides opportunities for students who wish to follow their passion for softball through this unique academic program.

Tommy Douglas is a designated Advanced Placement (AP) school for students who excel and wish to further enrich their experience in certain subject areas. This program is currently offered in English Language Arts and Biology and these courses also carry the potential to earn a university or college credit prior to leaving high school. As an AP school, students can take any AP exam offered in any subject area, although this would require individual study and preparation.

French Immersion is offered from Grade 9 to Grade 12 with students entering the program from both elementary French Immersion and late immersion tracks. From Grade 9 to Grade 12, their French Language Arts and history classes are taught exclusively in French, while science and math courses vary in language depending on the year. Students enrolled in the French Immersion program receive the opportunity to further explore their language development and cultural understanding both nationally and internationally.

Facilities at Tommy Douglas Collegiate include a 450-seat performing arts theatre; state-of-the-art computer, graphic art and home economics labs; large band room; a dance studio; and specialized studios for art and digital photography.

The City of Saskatoon's Shaw Centre which is part of the integrated nature of our location provides Tommy Douglas students with access to the pool and aquatic programs.
