Henry James (H.J.) Cambie Secondary School
Cambie Secondary School is physically attached to the Cambie Community Centre (And East Richmond Community Association) and enjoys an inclusive and diverse student community. As a building, Cambie has one of the top educational facilities in the province. Cambie has an outstanding reputation for both athletics and academics, with an outstanding fine arts department, tremendous breadth of clubs, and many City, Zone, and Provincial championships in sports such as Badminton, Rugby, and Volleyball.
Cambie has a strong sense of community as well as strong and supportive school culture. Teachers and Education Assistants work together and use innovative teaching and assessments practices, while layering in excellent use of technology. Cambie works in partnership with the adjoining Community Center for many programs. With our slightly smaller school population, students develop great connections with everyone within the school community and feel extremely safe.
