Dr John Hugh Gillis Regional High School Canada
At Dr. John Hugh Gillis Regional High School students will be provided the opportunities to develop the knowledge, abilities, attitudes and skills so that they will become responsible and caring persons who are competent, confident thinkers who make a valued contribution to society. The Dr. John Hugh Gillis High School was originally named the Antigonish Regional High School when it opened its doors in 1970. When its superintendent, Dr. John Hugh Gillis, suffered a debilitating stroke, the school was renamed in his honor. Originally, the school was a self-contained entity with its own school board and superintendent. At this time it served students from grades seven to twelve, had a population of over 1300 students, and a teaching staff of seventy-six.
