Established in the 1994-95 school year, Fisher Park Public School with its Summit Alternative program is a grade 7 and 8 site within the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. There are approximately 570 students in 5 programs: English, Early French Immersion, Middle French Immersion, French Gifted and Alternative.


Our Students

Our student population reflects the diversity and richness of Canadian culture. Our students come from 38 countries, their parents from 74. An impressive 64% of our students speak another language fluently. The Summit Alternative Program is the only intermediate alternative setting in the OCDSB. Our school offers students the opportunity to develop their talents in the areas of academics, the arts, athletics and leadership across a number of programs.


The FPSA acronym was adopted during the 20th year of the alliance between Fisher Park and Summit Alternative

February 23rd, 2016 - Give a little...help a lot – Students helping students

When kids come to our schools with hungry tummies, we help feed them. When they can’t afford winter boots or a coat, we find them warmth for the winter. When kids don’t have a backpack full of supplies for school, we provide them.
