Welcome to Sisler, chosen by Maclean’s magazine as one of the best schools in Canada! Sisler is the largest high school in Manitoba and is therefore able to offer you a wide variety of courses and programs not available elsewhere. Many of the following features are unique to Sisler: First Year University of Manitoba (Calculus Challenge course), First Year University of Winnipeg English, Advanced Placement Chemistry, 10 computer labs, French Immersion, Women in Technology, All-girls classes (if requested), Performing Arts, Pre-employment Program, English as a second Language Program, Technology Education, etc.
Sisler offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities that include a first rate daily Intramural Program and a well balanced highly competitive Athletic Program. Sisler athletes have always placed highly in volleyball, track & field, curling, football, basketball, golf, rugby, and cross country. Sisler students have access to a school cafeteria, school store (The Agora), and the first library to be totally computerized in the Winnipeg School Division. Our Visual and Performing Arts Department has won gold medals in international competitions. The dance group, Sisler’s Most Wanted, has performed with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, before the Premier of Manitoba, and at the Grey Cup. Our senior choir and dance group performed before Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth, the only school in the Winnipeg School Division selected to do so.
Sisler has recently undergone a major upgrading of facilities. A new gym, computer lab, science lab, and the Taras Korol Theatre (in honour of a former teacher who turned down offers from Broadway and Walt Disney to work at Sisler) have all been newly constructed. Vast renovations took place in the library, the life skills area, the Student Services Centre and the Administrative Offices. The costs totaled $5.4 million.
