Our Hayden school community is a campus wherein we have access to the three artificial turf fields, a skateboard park, eight university gyms, and chill spaces every weekday until 6 pm. The city ‘owns’ our campus and rooms every weeknight and weekends. This has been a viable and financially prudent model as we also share a fully integrated public library. We have built our foundation on 21st century learning, physical and mental wellness, and school community. Driving this framework is our focus on Student Engagement and Building meaningful relationships. It is the only driving force that matters for building a student focused learning environment.

Imagine a school community where students lead the learning for teachers, parents, administrators, trustees, and the community. The leaders at Dr. Frank J. Hayden Secondary School are passionate about building our school community. In public education, we are a community of learners. At Dr. Frank J. Hayden Secondary School we believe we need to encourage and activate students’ voices so they demonstrate and refine our teaching-learning processes to meet their needs and interests and to enhance community engagement and improve student achievement. We will continue to identify and honour all strengths within this school community and deepen all learners’ interests and successes. Ultimately, we will ensure our organizational structures support student learning as the first priority as we continue to grow and build this exciting school community in Alton.
At Hayden Secondary School, our school community is a place where everyone, including students, staff, parents and community partners can share their leadership skills and work together towards student success in a dynamic, caring and healthy school environment. By empowering our students, we will build a sustainable, strong, collaborative school community. We believe our students will have the energy, skills and drive to create a great learning experience for all. At Hayden Secondary School, student-centred, student-led and student activism are not clichés, but the definition of our school culture.
Thank you for your interest in our school community.
