About Our School

Welcome to Lambton-Kent Composite School! We are located in in the small historical town of Dresden, Ontario and offer education for students in grades 9-12. Situated on a treed campus, Lambton-Kent Composite School offers excellent educational facilities. It combines a rural "family-like" atmosphere with opportunities usually provided in a much larger school. Our motto, "Growth Toward Excellence," is evident both academically and in the wide variety of co-curricular activities available.

L.K.C.S. offers students a well-rounded education by providing a wide range of traditional subjects, including math, science, social science, business, languages and the arts. Our broad-based technological program allows students to work with modern technology in unique situations. Students are encouraged to explore employment opportunities through our co-operative education program. L.K.C.S. graduates attend a variety of Canadian and U.S. universities and colleges, many with academic scholarships.

L.K.'s co-curricular activities include a full slate or athletic teams, a drama program and clubs that emphasis community involvement. These activities function because of the dedication of the coaches and advisors who assist our students in reaching their full potential.
