Forster extreme wide.jpg

At the end of this school year J.L. Forster Secondary School (picture, left) will close and the Century Secondary School building will become the new comprehensive high school in the area.

Besides some renovations, the school will have a new name and a new identity and the Board is seeking input from the community. What will this school mean to the community? How can the school name reflect the distinctiveness of the community?

To provide input please use this form: Forster - Century school naming.pdf and e-mail it to

Forms are also available and may be dropped off at: Forster and Century secondary schools or Dougall, Brock, Marlborough, Taylor and Benson public schools. They can also be mailed to: High School Naming c/o GECDSB 451 Park St. W., P.O. Box 210 Windsor, ON N9A 6K1.

Submissions will be accepted until October 25th.
