New Amherstburg High School

In November, 2015 the Board of Trustees of the Greater Essex County District School Board initiated a plan to consolidate General Amherst High School and Western Secondary School in a new building at a site within the Municipality of the Town of Amherstburg.

A business case was approved by the Ministry of Education and in October, 2016 a grant of $24,324,129 was awarded for the construction of the school to accommodate 819 students.

The site selected for the building is 15 acres at the southern end of Centennial Park.

It is expected to be finished for the 2020-21 school year.
