St. James Regional High School System Review
The Newfoundland and Labrador English School Board is undertaking a review of the St. James Regional High School System with the potential for LeGallais Memorial to close. The process includes consultation with school councils, administrators, and the school communities.

Two options are proposed:
  • Option 1
    LeGallais Memorial would close and K-6 students would attend St. James Elementary and Grades 7-12 students would attend St. James Regional High.

  • Option 2
    LeGallais Memorial would close with K-9 students to attend Grandy's River Collegiate, beginning September 2018. Senior high students attending St. James Regional High in 2018-2019 would remain until graduation in 2021.

    Commencing in the 2019-2020 school year, all senior high students of LeGallais Memorial catchment would attend Grandy's River Collegiate.
