Principal's Message


As Principal at École H.J. Cody High School I would like to welcome you. My leadership is built on relationships and trust with all students, parents, and staff to create a learning environment where the top priority is success of all students. I’ve earned a bachelor of Education from the University of Alberta, and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Phoenix.

École H.J. Cody High School is a terrific school with an amazing team of staff who shares the passion to ensure high levels of learning for all students. We are committed to providing students with the greatest opportunities to succeed academically by believing in them, encouraging them, and challenging them. Our strengths in academics, Athletics, Fine Arts, Student Council, Mentorship, Interact, and leadership make École H.J. Cody High School an outstanding learning community. We are also focused on continued improvement.  Our school goals, which are outlined in our School Education Plan are targeted and aligned with Chinook’s Edge strategic goals. Our school goals are focused on academic excellence, literacy, numeracy, post-secondary transitioning, as well as ethical citizenship.

Sylvan Lake is home for my family and we enjoy travelling, boating, camping, sports, music and being involved in many of the events the beautiful town of Sylvan Lake has to offer. Please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,

Mike Garrow
