International Students

Updated: December 13, 2018

Welcome to Fleetwood Park Secondary School! The staff in the ELL department are committed to helping make your experience at Fleetwood Park a positive and valuable one.

On this page, you will find important information and updates about events going on in the school.

If you are struggling in your courses or in your school life, come visit me or any of the ELL teachers for help.


Join the International Clubhouse, if you want to chat and socialize in different languages and plan fun activities for the international and non-international students of FPSS. Come to our meetings in Room A305 every Wednesday!

All International Students must come to at least one International Clubhouse meeting per month to check in with Ms Ikeda starting in October.

Join the International Students group on the FP Dragons app, check the International Student board in A305 and look out for monthly notices sent to you through your Block B class teacher for announcements about field trips and other activities.
