Board Profile

Our schools provide a welcoming environment with a focus on the well being of each student. Where each student is encouraged to reach his/her potential through quality programs delivered by highly trained, caring staff, in an atmosphere of respect for all.

We believe that communication and working in partnership with the home and our communities are key to our success.

The following are some facts and figures about us.

The Algoma District School Board serves a geographic area of 70,534 square kilometers and encompasses communities along the north shore of Lake Huron from Spanish to Sault Ste. Marie including Serpent River, Elliot Lake, Blind River, Iron Bridge and the communities of Central Algoma with Bruce Mines, Desbarats, St. Joseph Island, Laird and Echo Bay and along the east coast of Lake Superior from Sault Ste. Marie to Hornepayne which includes Wawa, Chapleau, Missanabie and White River.

The Algoma District offers quality of life particularly for outdoor enthusiasts. Surrounded by water and trees, this four seasons playground provides immediate access to magnificent scenery.
