School & System Changes

In Capreol, the local high school was flourishing.  A gymnasium, three commercial rooms, new offices, a staff room, and a library were all added to the school.

In 1973, at the same time that the high school system switched over to semesters, Capreol High School was celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

As part of the Sudbury Board of Education, Capreol High School continued to serve the students of Capreol until its closure in 1997.  Currently, the building is used by the Capreol Millennium Resource Centre, offering fitness and recreational activities to the community.
