Due to questions from 2012-13 Grade 7 parents, I went to UHill Secondary and talked with Principal Alex Grant.
He said Gr. 8’s in Fall 2013 will be enrolled at the new NRC location of UHill Secondary. He explained that the expected capacity problems excluding the Gr. 8’s long term at the NRC location won’t affect the school at the beginning.
It gets more interesting for the Gr. 8’s in Fall 2014 and beyond. The new Acadia Rd. school is expected to be completed by then. The different transition scenarios for UHill Elementary / Acadia Rd. Elementary and Acadia Rd. Middle School (Gr. 6 – 8) are still being worked out. Uncertainties with construction completion don’t make these scenarios any easier to figure out.
