In the mid-19th century a number of former students went on to become activists for First Nations and Métis rights. They included Mohawk chief Joseph Onasakenrat and Métis leader Louis Riel.
It was the first high school in Montreal and is still considered one of the best in the province. It is particularly well regarded for its "accelerated immersion" program, in which students from English schools who were in French immersion programs can, within two years, be brought up to the same level as students who came from francophone schools. Although enrolment was previously limited to boys, the school has been co-educational since 1997. The school's performance hall, the Ermitage, was an important venue for public concerts in Montreal from its establishment in 1914 up into the 1960s.
In a widely reported article in 2008, Le Journal de Montréal found that school administrators and in particular its Director-General, Jacques Giguère, had expensed many non-school related items, including high-priced furniture, a luxury hotel suite for a Christmas party, and the services of a personal trainer. Both the school's teachers union and staff union called for Giguère's resignation.
