Four Nations, One Vision


Grades Taught



Maskwacis Cree High School (formerly Nipisihkopahk Secondary School) is a stunning facility opened in September of 1998. We offer a full academic based program for grades 10-12 that follows the Alberta Education curriculum integrated with culturally relevant content. Our students take part in the Alberta Diploma Examinations for grade twelve. Maskwacis Cree High School (MCHS) promotes a safe and caring school community preparing students to take flight as responsible and active members of this community. The design of the school facilitates specialized approaches to education program delivery. In fond remembrance of and valuable contributions by three Samson Cree Nation members, the building recognizes them by having three special areas within the school named after them – The Jonas Applegarth Theatre, The Nancy Louis-Yellowbird Wing and The Sister Nancy LeClair (Lightning) Library. The Jonas Applegarth Theatre is a 300 seat multi-purpose community performing arts centre, which is used for assemblies, concerts, special presentations, workshops, and community events. Through education today we empower our youth for success tomorrow.
