More Information

For many years this large school was named Pierre Radisson Collegiate, built as a junior-senior high school which is now home to 300 full and part-time students who specialize in apprenticeships in industry-led training in a large variety of areas.

Design Characteristics

  • Built mostly at the same time, the one-and-two-storey design is a highly unified series of distinctive squared volumes all finished in a red brick.
  • Clerestory windows in the classroom and administration wings form a high horizontal strip. Most other windows are squared and stacked vertically.
  • The addition in 1978 was designed to be seamless with the original building.
  • The cavernous auditorium/gym is used for many concerts within the school division.
