The school, named after former federal cabinet minister James Lorimer Ilsley, is set to welcome students in September 2021.

It’s replacing the former J.L. Ilsley High building, which was plagued with issues from roof leaks to heating problems, that have cost the government thousands to repair.

The commitment to replace the school was part of Nova Scotia’s 2017-18 capital spending plan. Former Finance Minister Randy Delorey announced the replacement in January of 2017.
