Hatzic Secondary is a comprehensive high school located in rural Mission, approximately 4 km east of the City of Mission, British Columbia, Canada. Overlooking the Fraser River with the Westminster Abby in the background, Hatzic Secondary is situated in a beautiful location. Our 800 plus students come from both city and rural areas, bringing with them diverse educational interests and challenges. Our academic year is from September to June with students in Middle School (Grades 7 - 9) and Grad Program (Grades 10 - 12).
Come join us on Friday, December 20th, starting at 8am in the cafeteria for a waffle breakfast.
