Forest K-12 School

‚Äč‚Äč‚ÄčThe Lambton Kent District School Board is inviting members of the Forest area community to share their thoughts on a potential name for the Forest Area Kindergarten to Grade 12 school. Visit the Ad Hoc Naming Committee page for further details.‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč‚Äč

‚ÄčThe Lambton Kent District School Board is excited to engage with students, staff and community Forest Area of School in the planning and development of a new Kindergarten to Grade 12 school in the Forest area. The school will consolidate students from Aberarder Central School, Bosanquet Central School, Kinnwood Central School and North Lambton Secondary School. The facility will also include a two room Child and Family Centre and a one-room child care centre, which will provide 24 new child care spaces.

The new school will be located on a site directly west of the Shores Recreation Centre in Forest, located in the Municipality of Lambton Shores.

In accordance with Ministry processes and following appropriate approvals at the Ministry and Board levels, the LKDSB is planning for a possible groundbreaking in Spring 2023. The overall project, including design, tender and construction, is likely to be a three-year process.
