Welcome to the Lester B. Pearson School Board

Welcome to the Lester B. Pearson School Board (LBPSB), one of the largest and most successful English school boards in Quebec. LBPSB covers a vast territory spanning Montreal’s West Island, extending to off-island and South-West regions, encompassing the richness of the city’s landscapes and the diversity of its people.

LBPSB successfully implements its educational mission to over 25,000 students across 36 elementary schools, 10 high schools, and 8 adult/vocational centres. We offer an array of programs and courses in the Youth and Vocational sectors, capturing a variety of core competencies and learning outcomes. 
We continue to have one of the highest secondary school graduation rates in Quebec public schools.  Our commitment to student success is guided by 3 core values: Achievement, Wellness, and Engagement; reflected in a teaching philosophy that is student-focused, innovative and adapted to the 21st century classroom.   Moreover, our dedication to Equity, Diversity, Dignity and Inclusion serves to improve the learning and social experiences for the students and communities we serve. 

The Lester B. Pearson School Board is proud to have established recruitment partnerships with over thirty (30) countries around the world. Such partnerships allow for an incredibly diverse student culture not only within our programs, but in the Canadian community as a whole. As part of such a diverse community, the Lester B. Pearson School Board is proud to offer its international students the opportunity to grow and learn in a bilingual environment throughout their educational journeys. 

On behalf of our entire staff, we would like to thank you for your interest in our programs and we hope that you choose Lester B. Pearson School Board to further your education. 

We look forward to meeting you soon.
