Beacon Heights Public School

In November 2015, the Greater Essex County District School Board (GECDSB) was awarded a grant of $15.3 million for the construction of a new school in Tecumseh. In 2022 the GECDSB was awarded an additional $7.2 million for this project. This new school will replace the current D.M. Eagle Public School and serve students from Kindergarten to Grade 8 within the Tecumseh and Lakeshore areas.
