About Bishop Smith CHS

Bishop Smith Catholic High School


Bishop Smith Catholic High School was established in 1982. Our original high school, which was uniquely octagonal in shape, was located at 390 Bell Street in the City of Pembroke. In the summer of 1992, we moved to our present location at 362 Carmody Street. We are fortunate to occupy a large piece of treed property in the center of the city, surrounded by the Indian River.

Since inception, our student and staff population has evolved  along with our curricular and ‘ extra-curricular ‘ programing. Programs have developed in response to Ministry of Education directives and student interests, needs, and wants. Some of our outstanding opportunities include:  participation in Canada’s largest recreational reading program, Hockey Canada Skills Academy programing, drama and music production courses, participation in the Enrichment Mini Course Program (EMCP), University of Waterloo math contest participation and the Dominican Republic Experience program.

Personal Electronic Device Policy

In response to the provincial government’s new law on cell phones in Ontario’s schools (2019), our Bishop Smith School Council has prepared a personal electronic device usage amendment to our school “Code of Behaviour”. The amendment, posted below, was created in consultation with students, staff members and administrators.
