Lockerby Composite School is a high school located in the Lockerby neighbourhood of Greater Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, a short distance from Science North and the Lily Creek watershed. Its motto is "Scientia Nos Ducet" ("Knowledge Will Lead Us"). Lockerby became the first public high school in Ontario to include a laptop program in its curriculum in September 1999, a program which has since expanded to half of the student population.

Lockerby was one of the first schools in Canada to offer the Science and Technology Education Program (STEP). STEP focuses science and technology in addition to teaching regular academic courses at the same time. The program is interchangeable and customizable. There is a laptop option, and there are additional enrichment programs that are offered in certain courses such as math and English.
