Welcome! Bienvenue! Pjila'si!

Amherst Regional High is a grade 9-12 school in Chignecto Family of the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board, CCRCE. Our mission is to provide a student-centered learning environment which encourages growth, responsibility, and the achievement of individual potential.

Communication with Students/Families
School wide communication is shared through our school website, Powerschool Messenger, parent email,  social media sites, student handbook.

Periodically, Amherst Regional High School will contact parents with key pieces of information via the School Messenger System. This will phone, text or email parents, depending on their preference selected on the student registration form.

Individual student information is shared through student agenda’s, emails, phone calls, meetings, and the PS Student-Parent Portal. The PS Student-Parent Portal is a secure site that allows parents to access their child’s in-progress marks as well as attendance information. If you require a username or password to log into the portal, please contact the school.

Expectations for Student Success at School
Students are responsible for participating in their learning.  Students are encouraged to discuss with their teacher what they have learned and what they have yet to learn.  Discussion may also include due dates, negotiate extensions and re-submitting work.  The process for incomplete assessments will follow the EECD Process for Classroom Assessment Due Dates and Extensions.

ARHS will be following the 2022 Nova Scotia Assessment Policy which incorporates the use of course communication plans, Google classroom and in person conversations. These forms allow communication and procedures of assessment deadlines and/or incomplete work. Teachers will also follow up with students and parents.

Attendance and Reporting a Student Absence
We want to see our students succeed and we know that student success is linked to regular attendance in school. ARHS will follow the EECD Attendance and Engagement Policy to support student success through conversations with students, parents and guardians. ARHS is also a pilot school for the Safe Arrival Program which will be put in place to support real time student attendance.
