Dr. Frank J. Hayden Secondary School

Principal Jacqueline Newton with Dr. Frank Hayden at new school site

Thursday, October 27, 2011 marked the official groundbreaking of the new joint community facility in Burlington’s Alton community. The $40.2 million project includes a three-storey secondary school, called Dr. Frank J. Hayden Secondary School, that will accommodate approximately 1,200 students when it is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013.  

The school is one part of the community complex, which will also include a 7,000 square foot public library and a community centre with five competition-size gyms. By combining these facilities and sharing resources, the Halton District School Board, Burlington Public Library and the City of Burlington are able to reduce the overall design and construction costs while providing important services to the community.

The location of this shared facility is Dundas St (Hwy #5) and Tim Dobbie Way, Burlington.

Jacqueline Newton is the principal and she can be reached at newtonj@hdsb.ca.
