History

Westway High School opened its doors as a small high school in 1969 by the Etobicoke Board of Education with a high quality, unique, and alternative curriculum for students who wish to attain the skills, values and attitudes that will prepare them for work, lifelong learning and participation in community life.

As enrolment decreased in Etobicoke's public schools during the 1980s, many seriously underpopulated public schools in the area were abandoned as the children were transferred to the Catholic school system when full funding was introduced. As a result, Central Etobicoke High School was formed in 1988 at the same site and assimilated its basic level programs at Westway, Humbergrove Secondary School and Kingsmill Secondary School, with both of the latter schools closed and transferred to the Metropolitan Separate School Board (now the Toronto Catholic District School Board).
