Chilliwack Secondary School

Building on a portfolio of community minded projects, Chilliwack High School seeks to integrate education and community in unique ways. A series of casual meeting areas were combined with a variety of community uses ranging from First Nations educational facilities, a student mom daycare, a hairdressing salon, welding facilities and incubator ‘shops’ for student led businesses were incorporated with other more traditional educational facilities.

Together with a sustainable focus on clean air, energy efficiency and the use of cross laminated timber, the school represents the leading edge of social, physical, and mental health-based learning while also functioning as a community hub.
