Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board

The abundant lakes and forests that serve as the backdrop for our district provide our students with a living classroom for ecological and nature studies literally ‘in their back yard.’ Throughout all seasons, our students have available to them a host of leisure activities, including winter skiing, hiking, horseback riding, golfing, kayaking and fishing.

Uniquely located in the Kawartha Lakes District of Ontario, the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board (KPR) is a progressive, forward-thinking educational community dedicated to student excellence. 

Our International Student Program is small and allows for true immersion in an authentic Canadian experience. Full time ESL is offered at two of our largest Secondary Schools. We are very proud of our reputation for safe communities, excellent teachers, and state of the art technology and resources for our students.
