New high school campus
A secondary school pavilion will be added to L’école élémentaire publique Terre des Jeunes in Alexandria in September.
Le Campus L’Héritage d’ Alexandria, an offshoot of l’école secondaire publique L’Héritage, will serve students in grades 7 to 12, while the elementary school will offer courses to children in kindergarten to grade 6.
“This new campus will enable students in the Alexandria region to benefit from the International Baccalaureate program, permitting them to pursue their studies close to home,” says Christian-Charle Bouchard, superintendent of education with Le Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario.
The French-language public board touts the campus as an example of its ability to innovate, calling the pavilion the first of its kind in the area.
Campus L’Héritage students will continue to benefit from the Sportech courses at Terre des Jeunes during their intermediate years, observes Principal Daniel Lalonde.
