Welcome to the Lyon's Den
Home and Pride of the Mackenzie Lyons circa 1960
William Lyon Mackenzie C. I. is a Toronto District Secondary School opened in 1960 and located in North York.
Mackenzie was named after the historical prowess William Lyon Mackenzie, the political agitator who led the
government revolt in Toronto in 1837. In its years of establishing a home of blue and gold, William Lyon Mackenzie
Collegiate not only built an incredible student body of 1500 strong, but also a strong, tight-knit community that
prides itself on multicultural diversity, inclusion, creativity and academic innovation. And, here is where the
heart and soul of the Lyon Pride resound.
William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate boasts scholastic excellence in its academic programing: the MaCS enrichment
program, the Gifted Program, the ELL program, the Advanced Placement Program, and the FIT program. Collectively,
these programs have helped nurture student voice and advocacy and inspire a variety of extracurricular
opportunities from clubs and councils to intramurals and athletics, to school-wide events and initiatives, all
of which beautifully reflect the spirit of membership - the roar of the Lyon Pride.
By definition, a metropolis is a significant cultural center of a country or region
and a central hub for regional connections and communications.
Likewise, it is our goal at Project Metropolis to create a centralized website at WLMAC where all students can easily
access and share information with their peers, making this our own, online metropolis.
