About Our School:

Named after an explorer committed to expanding the boundaries of knowledge in his time, David Thompson High School has developed its own proud tradition of providing top quality education to successive generations of students living on the east side of the Wild Rose School Division.


Small in numbers only, DTHS is recognized as a "Little Giant" in terms of student achievement.  Excellence in academics, career and technology studies, physical education and team sports, is the hallmark of our school.  At the same time, our small size helps create an inclusive, supportive environment and a strong sense of extended family.


Staff, students, and parents working together collaboratively, have, over the past fifty years, created an outstanding learning community of which we are proud.  David Thompson High School, Home of the Voyageurs.


David Thompson High School is located approximately 60km west of Red Deer or 35 km east of Rocky Mountain House along highway 11.  We are situated between the communities of Leslieville and Condor.
