Ontario has officially approved the construction of a new high school in Beamsville.

The $50.4 million provincial investment will go towards building a new public high school on the border of Lincoln and Grimsby.

The new school, which replaces three others in the west-end of the region, will feature a community theatre, a greenhouse, French immersion, agricultural programs and other amenities.

"After a decade of school closures in rural Ontario, our government knows that families in West Niagara deserve modern and accessible classrooms,” said Education Minister, Stephen Lecce.

1500 students are expected to attend the school, which is slated to open in September of 2022.
