    The original two story building and separate gymnasium structure was built in1960 and served as the Forest Lawn High School with buildings and fields on 12.94 acres. The building was renovated and added to over the years, with a Library installation in 1978, and a lunchroom in 1982. In 2003 the academic wing of the building was upgraded to present day standards for safety and design. In 2008 most of the original building was demolished and reconstructed as a state-of-the-art complementary course wing, including a new restaurant style cafeteria and technology infused library. At the beginning of 2009 the large gymnasium was repainted as the final detail for opening the renewed Ian Bazalgette School. The school has 26 classrooms.

    Ian Bazalgette school has invested in technology to provide state-of-the-art equipment for our students to benefit from the augmented teaching and learning that is available to them. They have access to three Computer labs, a Fine Arts/CTS Lab, a Communication Technology Lab, a Multimedia Lab, a Macintosh lab, and Digital Photography equipment.
