Over the past three years, HWDSB has conducted extensive consultation on secondary education through the accommodation review process. Recent Board decisions have reduced the number of secondary schools from 18 to 13. HWDSB’s decision to close secondary schools will allow funds to be redirected from the maintenance of underused facilities to the renewal of school facilities.
The remaining secondary schools are strategically located throughout the City of Hamilton, most with enrolments of over 1,000 students to ensure a wide range of program offerings. Where possible, school boundaries are designed to include a wide range of students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.
See Appendix A for a system map of remaining secondary schools.
