Barrie’s newest secondary school now has a name.
Maple Ridge Secondary School is scheduled to open as of September 2021. The new name was approved at a recent meeting of the Simcoe County District School Board. It was one of over 500 submisssions from the school communitiy, and was selected among them by a School Naming Committee. The committee provided three recommendations to the Board of Trustees for a final decision.
Students coming from the Hewitt’s Creek PS, Hyde Park PS, and Algonquin Ridge ES areas will attend Maple Ridge Secondary School. Grade 9 and 10 students will head to class at the new school at the beginning of the next school year.
