Donald A. Wilson Secondary School opened in September 2004. Wilson started the 2004 school year with approximately 660 students and our current enrollment is approximately 1,300 students for the 2018 - 2019 school year.
We are committed to providing students with a diverse education in a safe, respectful environment that promotes self-discipline, motivation and excellence in learning.
The Code of Conduct establishes the level of behaviour expected for all. Following the Code of Conduct helps to ensure that we have the best possible school where success and achievement are reached through cooperation, courtesy and respect. Please review the Code of Conduct at the start of the school year.
At Donald A. Wilson S.S. we have a "Good Neighbour Policy" which reflects our commitment to our community. We will exercise appropriate discipline when the behaviour of our students disrupts the safety and orderlieness of our surrounding geographical area.

Religious Accommodations and Modifications
The Durham District School Board Equity and Inclusive Education Policy #4107 is a commitment to embracing diverse social realities; while maintaining positive, safe and inclusive environments for all students and staff. The policy is a reflection of Ontario’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy, supporting all areas of Durham District School Board principles, practices, and guidelines. Donald A. Wilson S.S. supports this policy through inclusive activities in our school and school community.
We value and respect all members of our school community and as such ensure that resources are provided that reflect the work being done to address anti-discrimination and inclusive education. These issues are discussed in the Ministry of Education's Curriculum documents to promote fairness, healthy relationships, and active, responsible citizenship. The Durham District School Board's school libraries and classroom resources reflect inclusivity and serve to foster sensitivity towards individuals and groups that have traditionally been and/or are currently being marginalized within the broader society. These resources serve to identify and remove barriers that may exist for various groups and families. They may touch on topics of ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, family status and marital status. Our goal is to provide students with opportunities to promote equity and social justice.
Our Guidelines and Procedures for the Accommodation of Religious Requirements, Practices, and Observances was produced in compliance with requirements of Ontario’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy. The document is produced within the contexts of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Ontario Human Rights Code. This document outlines how staff can create and maintain equitable and inclusive environments within schools. It also outlines the process for providing religious accommodations as the need arises. You may ask to review a copy here at the school or online at http://www.ddsb.ca/AboutUs/EquityInclusiveEducation/Pages/default.aspx. If you anticipate that your children may require religious accommodation at any point during the school year we ask that you inform the school as early as possible.
