Our ten elementary schools provide a variety of wonderful learning experiences. Four schools are located in Châteauguay, six are located throughout the Châteauguay Valley. Each school has its own unique culture with commonalities that include strong early literacy programs and a commitment to strengthening and improving instructional practice. Our schools strive to develop students of character and pride themselves in being active members of their communities.
We have two vibrant and active secondary schools. Chateauguay Valley Regional High School is located in Ormstown and Howard S. Billings High School is located in Châteauguay. Each school has a unique identity with commonalities that include focused efforts in adolescent literacy, dedicated staff members, a range of academic programs and varied extra-curricular opportunities.
Special Needs School
Chateauguay’s new school for students with special needs will be open for the 2019-2020 school year. It will be the ÉCOLE RÉGIONALE BRENDA-MILNER REGIONAL SCHOOL. This project is the result of a partnership between the Commission scolaire des Grandes-Seigneuries and the New Frontiers School Board. With a regional mandate, the school will accommodate students aged 4 to 21, at the preschool, elementary and secondary levels, who have a profound or moderate-to-severe intellectual disability and associated disorders.
Construction began in 2018, and when completed (projected completion summer, 2019), will accommodate up to 85 Francophone and Anglophone students and almost as many staff. The building and site design allow for future expansion to increase capacity to a total of 140 students. The school includes 16 classrooms, multi-sensory rooms, and specialized areas for occupational therapy, music therapy, hygiene needs, meal preparation, a therapeutic pool, gymnasium and an outdoor playground.
