Welcome to Esquimalt High School


Our programs provide students with opportunities to reach their potential, strive towards excellence and make full use of their unique combinations of energies, talents and interests.  In doing so students at Esquimalt High School are encouraged “to be rather than to seem”or as the school motto says, in Latin, “esse quam videri.”

We look forward to hearing from you.  For more information phone 250-382-9226 or email us at esquimalt@sd61.bc.ca.
