Long Bay High School to open for 2015-2016 academic year
Published on May 12, 2015 Email To Friend    Print Version

The new academic year will herald several firsts for students in the Turks and Caicos Islands. It will be the first day of preschool for the active and timid preschooler, the first day protective parents will release their babies and preteens from their hovering clutches into the hollow walls of educational institutions to receive quality education and for the ministry of education it will be the first day a new high school will welcome its first set of students, coming some 28 years after the first high school was built on the island of Providenciales.

Like all other government educational institutions, the new school will open its doors at the commencement of the academic year 2015-2016 and will embrace its first batch of students who will intern be the first graduating class of the institution in 2020.

Located in the Long Bay Hills area, the Long Bay High School as it will be named, will be a fully functional high school separate and apart from the Clement Howell High School. The school will be built in phases, with the first phase accommodating all first formers (Form 1) or year one students who registered for public high school in Providenciales for the new academic year.

The second phase will give allowance for the enrollment of students entering forms two to five (forms 2-5). This is in keeping with the pivotal role that education plays in nation building. Students will be afforded holistic development through the provision of educational opportunities and friendly learning environments for them to flourish into well-adjusted adults.
