Description:
<!-- Deleted image removed: -->

J. S. Woodsworth Secondary School was a high school in the Parkwood Hills neighborhood of Ottawa (formerly Nepean), Ontario, Canada. Located at 159 Chesterton Drive, the school opened in 1973 and closed on June 30, 2005. The school's sports team was the Warriors, and the team's mascot was Woody the Warrior. The school's colours were green and Gold.

On Groundhog Day 2005, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board voted to close both J. S. Woodsworth Secondary School and Laurentian High School. Most of the students who go to both these schools have instead gone to Merivale High School or Brookfield High School, though other students who did not graduate had gone to other high schools across Ottawa. The school officially closed June 30, 2005.

J. S. Woodsworth Secondary School's closure has been attributed to a rapid decline in the size of its student body: while roughly 750 students enrolled around 2001, this fell to around 450 people by 2004. This likely has something to do with a shift in the community's demographics, as younger families have moved to communities such as Barrhaven.

One of the most famous graduates of J.S. Woodsworth is Charmaine Hooper who is a professional soccer player on Team Canada.

Currently the school is École secondaire public DesLauriers.
