Boréal French Immersion
Boréal French Immersion Public School is our Board’s latest facility to house its growing French Immersion population.
In 2016 we embarked on a major construction project: repurposing the former Alexander Henry High School into two updated structures. Boréal French Immersion Public School is the larger of these structures. It is a Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 school with nearly 500 students and staff. It also houses a daycare, operated by the YMCA. The second structure will house the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library, Transportation Consortium and ADSB’s Plant Department.
This fall we hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at Boréal FI Public School with VIP guests in attendance. The afternoon ceremony was followed by a public open house from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. Those who toured the school commented on the bright and welcoming spaces full of colour and innovative designs. The architectural, engineering and construction teams completely renewed the 53-year-old building with updated exterior facades and restructured interiors.
