Sheldon-Williams Collegiate, located in River Heights,  is a semestered comprehensive high school offering a strong academic platform and varied extra-curricular programing.  Sheldon has the warm, caring atmosphere of a smaller school that emphasizes mutual respect between staff and students.  One key message in Sheldon’s philosophy is “Ad Vitam Paramus – meaning preparing for life.”  Tradition, excellence and history is all a part of this high school’s values.

Sheldon is a real great school. The size of Sheldon-Williams makes it very easy to become involved in a wide variety of activities, along with creating a strong learning environment for students.”

Nova Olson, Grade 12 Student

 “Sheldon is awesome! It has all the opportunities of a big school but in a small school environment.”  

Derek Graves, Grade 12 Student

Academic Programs:

Sheldon-Williams Collegiate offers a strong academic program in an inclusive school setting that exudes a family atmosphere.  Staff members employ differentiated approaches to meet diverse student needs.  Sheldon values the opportunity to get to know students in a personal way through SWAP (Sheldon-Williams Advisory Program) in which students are placed in smaller groups supported by an advisor who coaches them through their high school years.  In addition to regular classes, Sheldon has Advanced Placement Classes in Art, English, Mathematics and Psychology.

Extra-curricular Activities:

The Sheldon-William Collegiate Spartans have pride in a well-rounded extra-curricular program.  Among a variety of choices, Sheldon offers an Outdoor Education Club which over 100 students participate in and love. 

An outstanding Arts Education program is supported by a number of extra-curricular opportunities for students to be a part of each year.   Traditionally there is a fall musical as well as Jazz Band, Choir, Graphic Arts, Photography, and Vocal Jazz.   S.W.A.M.P. (Sheldon Williams Area Music Parents), a registered non-profit organization, supports the music program and its directors.  They enrich the students’ musical experiences by providing volunteer assistance.  To learn more, you can contact the executive by email at swampit@gmail.com.

The Athletic Program at Sheldon has many opportunities for students to participate in a variety of sports.  Sheldon hosts the annual SWAT (Sheldon-Williams Annual Tournament) for basketball and the 52nd year was a huge success.  In addition to the regular sports programs offered, Sheldon offers wrestling, golf, badminton and curling.

Participation in extra-curricular activities is valued and encouraged by Sheldon-Williams Collegiate. 

Sheldon School Community Council:

The Sheldon-Williams School Community Council (SCC for short) is made up of parents, teachers, students and community members who work together to support learning. The SCC gives parents an opportunity to learn about what's going on at Sheldon, both in academics and extra-curricular activities.  It is also an opportunity to meet Sheldon staff and other parents, something that's often difficult in a high-school environment.

Welcoming Grade 9 Students:

Sheldon-Williams Staff offer future students several opportunities to observe high school life as they anticipate the final four years of public school.  The staff at SWC believes it is important for future students to experience first-hand what it is like to be a Spartan.  Students entering grade nine are welcome to attend scheduled school visits, an open house in February each year and an organized “Spend A Day” in the spring.  Sheldon wants students coming into the school to feel comfortable and welcomed.

Facility:

Sheldon-William Collegiate has many attractive features.  Among these is one a new Fitness Facility opened in 2012.   This new centre is known as the Ray Jacoby Fitness Centre.  Mr. Jacoby, a teacher with Regina Public Schools for 31 years was one of the driving forces behind this centre.  His efforts helped make the fundraiser “Sheldon Spirit-on-the-Lake” a huge success.  The $100,000.00 facility, which houses state-of-the-art equipment, is used and enjoyed by all staff and students to staff fit and keep active.

Other welcoming facility features include:

The POLLARD AUDITORIUM, named after the first principal Mr. J.R.A. Pollard is used for classes, assemblies and performances.

The WILMA E. DOWNING GYMNASIUM which was dedicated to honour Wilma Downing in recognition of her thirty-four year commitment to excellence in physical education.

The MACFARLANE ROOM, named after a scholar and raconteur,  John MacFarlane who taught at Sheldon-Williams from 1964 to 1992 and was recognized by the Saskatchewan English Teachers' Association with the presentation of the Joseph Duffy Memorial Award.  This room is inside the library and as a preparation room for staff.

The THOMAS J. PEART RESOURCE CENTRE, named in honour of a former English Department Head and outstanding academic teacher. The Resource Centre provides for the information and resource management needs to students and staff through an excellent collection of print and non-print materials. The Resource Centre is also fully equipped with the technology to serve student’s needs.

The STU ARMSTRONG CHEMISTRY LAB, dedicated to Mr. Stuart Armstrong, who retired after thirty two years at Sheldon-Williams Collegiate.

The LARRY LONGMORE FIELD, named in the honour of Mr. Larry Longmore; a physical education teacher, an art teacher and a coach for 29 years.

Partnership with Campus Regina:

Campus Regina Public provides high school students (Grades 11 and 12) from across the division the opportunity to enroll in specialty two credit courses, and dual university courses.  Each course is industry supported and features approved training that may not be available in their home school.  Students will engage in learning opportunities with others who share their passion for a specialty field of study which better supports their learning as they prepare for the transition to post-secondary studies and the workplace.  This opportunity is open to all high schools in Regina Public Schools.

History:
