Lockerby Composite School is a high school located in the Lockerby neighbourhood of
Greater Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, a short distance from Science Northand 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.
Lockerby Composite School offers students a wide range of co-curricular opportunities including, sports, clubs, and social events. The Lockerby Students' Council has the responsibility of organizing many of these events.
The original building was erected in 1958, however it has been greatly expanded over the years. The expansion job is traceable throughout the years, as the style of building varies. Features include three gyms, computer labs, science labs, and over a dozen e-Labs: classrooms equipped with ceiling mount projectors, network connections for every student, and laser printers.
There has been an active effort by the school to refurbish the building, including:
*A revamp of the south parking lot in 2007 to improve vehicle accessibility and student safety
*Automatic doors installed near the Student Services office
*the Sports field was regraded and re-sodded
*New locker doors installed
*a fence between the parking lot and the sports field
*refurbishment of the main doors and exterior of the main office
*The Lockerby wrestling team have won the city championship for 11 years in a row.
*The Lockerby boys curling team won gold at NOSSA and OFSAA (2007). The Senior football team has been very successful as well, defeating CVDCS 61-0.
