Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School offers English and French Immersion and is home to the International Baccalaureate (IB) program. This world renowned program encourages critical thinking, research skills, inquiry and reflection. Students graduating with an IB Diploma can earn up to three first-year university credits. Greater Sudbury students who qualify for the IB Program receive transportation.

Lo-Ellen Park also offers three Specialist High Skills Majors: Environment – Sustainable Agriculture; Construction – Architectural and Technology Design; and Manufucturing – Engineering, Design + Innovative Technology (EDIT). In addition, students enjoy a variety of extra-curricular activities in arts, athletics and academics.

Recent interior and exterior renovations have made Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School a school for the 21st century. The main entrance was relocated to the ground level next to the newly renovated library. The old foyer has been redesigned into a bright, modern cafeteria with a café-style setting. The former cafeteria has been repurposed into new classrooms. An additional classroom on the third floor is now a modern science lab. Upgrades also include new heat recovery units, LED lighting and a building automation system as Rainbow District School Board continues to make sustainability a priority.
