SD 52 is thrilled to announce that we will be replacing our Middle School with a new, modern school!

The Province is providing $126.8 million to make sure 600 students will be learning in a seismically safer school by replacing Prince Rupert Middle School.  The new school will include the addition of a neighborhood learning centre.  In keeping with the Province’s CleanBC emissions-reduction goals, the school will be designed with the aim of reducing greenhouse gases by more than 50% to match the LEED Gold Standard.  Mass-timber construction will also be incorporated into portions of the school as part of B.C’s commitment through the Mass Timber Action Plan in construction in public-sector buildings.

Here is the media release from the Ministry of Education:
