Aboriginal Education

There are currently 43 students at Lambton High School who identify as Aboriginal. We are pleased that a significant number of these students perform at or above the academic levels of our non-Indigenous students.

Programs and Initiatives

At Lambton High School we have:

  • Implemented the Norta Norta program to provide targeted learning support for Aboriginal students.
