As part of the Dufferin-Peel portable replacement plan, the school received a three-floor, 22-room addition that was completed in June 2001. Recently, further growth of the school has necessitated more portable units: five were added in 2006, five more in 2007, and one more in 2009. Beginning with incoming grade-9s in September 2010, the school will cap its intake to reduce the number of students to 1950 in 4–5 years.
