Welcome to the Port Moody Secondary School website. We are proud of our school and the wide variety of programs and options available to our students. We have an excellent staff, outstanding students, and a great community. This website is another example of our students "in pursuit of excellence".
The original Port Moody High School, which was located on the grounds of the current Moody Junior, burned to the ground in 1969. A new site was chosen for the new Port Moody Senior Secondary School which opened in 1973. A mythological bird which rose from the ashes, "The Phoenix", was appropriately chosen as the new school's mascot. The team name selected was the Port Moody Blues. Built to accommodate nine hundred students, Port Moody Secondary has grown to a population of well over fourteen hundred students and a staff of about one hundred.
|A new era for the school began in September 1998, as the school became Port Moody Secondary School incorporating grades 9 through 12. Our catchment area extends west to the Burnaby border, north to Anmore and Belcarra, south to Coquitlam, and east to the Coquitlam River.
Port Moody Secondary is respected for its academics; visual, performing and practical arts; and athletic programmes. A walk around our campus will attest to its attractive appearance and our Walls of Fame illustrate the numerous successes of our current students and our alumni. While an inclusive school, we are well known for our International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, and Career Preparation Programmes.
