Alternatively, you may prefer to break the segments up over several sessions or view the videos that are most relevant to your needs. We hope you enjoy our messages from Student Services, as well as our Department showcase videos. Click the link at the bottom of the page to view the videos. Please contact us using the click link to the Microsoft Form below if you have any questions or would like to discuss the grade 8-9 transition. We cannot wait to welcome you into our Raider family in September!


Update Thursday January 14, 2021: Grade 9 Math will be De-Streamed in September 2021

The Ontario Ministry of Education has shared more details related to its original announcement to de-stream Grade 9 Math. Beginning in September 2021 a new de-streamed Grade 9 Math course (MTH 1W) will replace Principles of Mathematics, Grade 9, Academic (MPM 1D) and Foundations of Mathematics, Grade 9, Applied (MFM 1P). Essex District High School will continue to offer Locally Developed Math (MAT 1L) and Enriched Math (MTH 1WN).
