The school offers spacious shops for senior trades, a theatre, state-of-the-art technology with touch screen interactive displays in each classroom, an oversized gymnasium, and many features that enhance student
accessibility, such as Braille on classroom signage, which adds to the inclusive feel of the school.
Overall, there is an abundance of natural lighting, and the school is equipped with solar panels to generate partial energy for energy needs. The addition of the panels has given the school a Leed Silver certification.
The school’s location and building are changing, but our commitment to student excellence and success remains. “We will continue to offer our Athletic Academy programming, and we proudly remain the only High
School north of Edmonton to provide the International Baccalaureate Programme,” explains Mr. Vobeyda.
The New Phoenix Logo
The logo features a phoenix rising from the name of the school. The phoenix is moving upwards to represent looking towards the future and rising to the occasion. The two spanned wings on either side of the phoenix
represent strength and speed as they pull the phoenix up from behind the lettering.
The phoenix symbolizes rebirth, the school's renewal, in a brand-new building. “Our students can now proudly call themselves GPCHS Phoenixes. My sincere thanks to the school community for their input into selecting our new name, and to nine10 for the design. Our school division's mission is to be a place where every student succeeds, and with this new school, our Phoenixes have a bright future,” says Vobeyda.
