History

Hammarskjold High School was constructed in 1962 in response to rapidly increasing enrollment at the former City of Port Arthur's other public high schools (Port Arthur Collegiate Institute, Hillcrest High School, and Lakeview High School). The school was given its name through a student referendum.

Hammarskjold accepted students in fall 1962 with only the two story classroom wing completed. The first student assembly at Christmas had male students sitting on the gym floor while the girls sat on the steel chairs, as the bleachers were not completed yet. The official opening was on May 22, 1963.

Hammarskjold High School has undergone numerous renovations and expansions throughout its history. The most recent expansion saw the addition of a library and music room in the school's former technology wing. Several technology classrooms have been converted to academic classrooms along with the school's increasing emphasis on academics over vocations.

In terms of athletics they have one of the city's most successful football programs, recently winning the 2008 SSSAA Football Championship
