Welcome to Salisbury
Salisbury, "Home of the Sabres", is the school of choice for the 21st Century Learner. We provide diversity in programs and excellent opportunities that prepare and develop students for the future.
"Sabre Pride" is demonstrated through our positive learning environment in which the members of the school community work together to promote the attitudes, skills, and knowledge that enable individuals to live caring, productive, and fulfilled lives.
Salisbury Composite High School has a proud tradition of excellence which began in 1953. In June of 1954, ten teachers organized the first Grad for 27 students. In the Fall of 1969, "Salisbury" became Salisbury Composite High School with a move to the present location in Sherwood Park and the opening of our vocational department. In June 1982, Grad was organized for 490 students, our largest graduating class thus far. Grad now averages about 350 students.
Salisbury Composite High School traditionally has a diverse culture that encompasses all levels of learning. We offer programs from the International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement Programs through to Knowledge and Employability and STEPS.
Salisbury's crest consists of a large "S" in front of crossed sabres. The sabres point skywards in a salute to victory.
Salisbury's motto is "Sail on with Pride and Tradition" represented by "Sic Sursum" which means "sail on". Our school logo consists of a sailing ship with "Sic Sursum" below. Salisbury's colours are red, black and white, and our teams are the Sabres.
