The History...

From its humble beginnings as the Sudbury Mining and Technical School to the formation of two schools called Sheridan Technical School and Sudbury High School, Sudbury Secondary School has had a long and proud history in the Sudbury community for 105 years!

In September 1985, the Sudbury Board of Education (now Rainbow District School Board) established the Performing Arts Program at Sudbury Secondary School. It was the first magnet arts program of its kind in Northern Ontario and has since been renamed the Arts Education Program. The program was created to allow students with a strong interest in and appreciation of the arts to have an opportunity to fulfill their secondary school graduation requirements while undertaking an in-depth study of one of the arts disciplines.

Sudbury Secondary School is well known for its Arts Education Program, featuring Drama, Dance, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Visual Art and Media Arts. The Arts Education department produces a main stage musical each year (usually in the fall), as well as various other plays, concerts, art exhibits, and dance shows throughout the year.

In December, 2007, the School Board's Administrative Council recommended that the school undergo a renewal project. The project is due to be completed in June 2013 with the final phase of the Auditorium addition.

The newly renovated school includes new science labs and gymnasium facilities as well as renewed classrooms. The all new Arts Wing includes spectacular dance, drama, vocal music, visual art and instrumental music studios. A media arts room is complimented with a class of fully equipped Apple computers plus video and sound equipment. A photography lab and a computer classroom with editing software completes the dedicated Arts Wing space.

Building Renewal

The renewal of Sudbury Secondary School began in September 2008 with the revitalization of the A wing which runs along Mackenzie Street, including a displacement ventilation system, new energy efficient washrooms, lighting and boilers, new state-of-the-art science labs, a family studies area, sewing room, weight room, computer labs and cafeteria. An addition accommodates change rooms adjoining a newly

renovated gymnasium.


Construction of the new arts wing began in June 2010. The new arts wing has modern music rooms and state of the art studios for dance, drama, visual arts, photography and media arts. The arts wing also houses a new library, wood shops, auto shops and administration offices. This part of the building will be connected to the Sheridan Auditorium, which is also being upgraded as part of the school renewal project and is projected to be completed in April of 2013. Demolition of the B and C wings, which run along Baker and College Streets, occurred in 2012.
