Environmentally and socially responsible
The new Oak Bay High is being built to LEED gold standards ensuring minimal environmental impact through construction and operation -- energy efficiency, low waste, clean air, minimal water use and sustainable materials are the norm.
The new school is also inclusive to those with disabilities, both physical and learning. Wide halls and stairways, an elevator, sophisticated wayfaring signage and extensive natural light make it easier to move through the school, and the special needs services will be extensive. In addition, the Neighbourhood Learning Centre and ongoing partnerships with local governments and organizations ensures that the new Oak Bay High will be available to support both student and community learning and activities
