The Polyvalente Le Carrefour is a public secondary school located in Gatineau, Quebec. It is located just across from the city's largest mall Les Promenades de l'Outaouais on Chemin de la Savane near Boulevard Greber. It is run by the Commission Scolaire des Draveurs school board in Gatineau and enrolls over 2 300 students and employs a personnel of about 175 including teachers, administration and custodian staff. The school itself contains an agora, several small sports and leisure infrastructures including a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a dance room, a weightlifting room as well as a large soccer field outside. Just south of the school, there is also a skateboard park and a skating rink stadium called Stade Pierre-Lafontaine.

On the 27th of september the school was evacuated after a hoax bomb alert and on the 1st of october the school was evacuated because of a fire in the eletric pannel, all students were evacuated.

International Program

For over 10 years, the high school offers an international program (initiated by UNESCO) to students in order to become more involved in the community, to initiate students to other cultures and traditions across the world and to be prepared for future studies at college and university. Generally, only high skilled students from the primary level can have access to this program. Objectives and work projects are more demanding and Spanish can be taught during the program.

New clothing policy

In June 2007, in response to complaints, the school adopted a new clothing policy in which students would wear new uniforms including polo sweaters starting in September 2007. In a poll, 88% of parents of student of Le Carrefour were in favour of a new measure while the student population was split over the matter. The school will become the second Gatineau public high school to adopt such policy after Polyvalente de l'Erabliere [ cite news|author = Le Droit|title = Finis les décolletés et les bedaines à l'école polyvalente Le Carrefour (Change in clothing policy at le Carrefour) |publisher = Le Droit|date = June 9, 2007|page = 4] .
