Lakeshore Collegiate Institute (originally operated as New Toronto Secondary School beginning in 1950) is a high school located in New Toronto that serves the New Toronto, Long Branch, and Mimico working class neighbourhoods (formerly the independent 'Lakeshore Municipalities' after which the school is named). It is situated at the intersection of Kipling Avenue and Birmingham Street. It is in Ward 3 of the Toronto District School Board.
New Toronto Secondary School was originally established to serve the Town of New Toronto with its emphasis on education in the technical trades, sciences, and mathematics. During the 1980s, enrollment at Etobicoke public schools plummeted as many catholic immigrants who arrived in the area transferred their children to the separate school system when full separate school funding commenced. This led to the closure of many schools including: Kingsmill Collegiate Institute, Alderwood Collegiate Institute, and Mimico High School whose students were combined into the New Toronto High School (renamed Lakeshore Collegiate Institute).
