Lester B. Pearson High School is a high school located in Burlington, Ontario, Canada, administered by the Halton District School Board. Founded in 1976, the school is named after former Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson.

Lester B. Pearson High School has just over 450 students enrolled from local communities. The high school has had numerous sporting successes. The school won a Halton title in men's hockey in 2006. The men's basketball team has had success with back to back Halton titles in 1992 and 1993, 3 repetitive Halton titles from 2005–2007 and one in 1988, with 3 Peel-GHAC championships and subsequent appearances at the OFSAA provincial championship tournament in 1988, 1993, 2006 and 2007. The rugby team has had OFSAA appearances numerous times for both senior girls and boys. In 2009 the Junior Boys Basketball Team won the Halton Boys Regional Basketball Championship. In 2011, the Senior Girls soccer team won the Halton Girls Championship and placed third at the 2011 OFSAA Championships. The Junior Girls Volleyball also won their championship in the same year. Also the Sr. Boys Rugby Team went to OFSAA for a 2nd year in a row and getting their first OFSAA win in a friendly match. In 2012, the Senior Boys Basketball, Senior Boys Volleyball, and Varsity Boys Rugby won championships in their respective sports. Varsity Boys Hockey, Girls Junior, Senior Volleyball, and Girls Softball made it to the championship games but unfortunately fell short. In 2002 the men's baseball team won Pearson's only OFSAA triple A championship at Skydome in Toronto. With the opening of Dr Frank Hayden S.S in 2013 Pearson's population dropped almost 200 students. Now with around 450 pupils Pearson may close down in the coming years.

Pearson also raised $9,000 to build a school in Sierra Leone, Africa with their Social Justice Program run by Ralph Trodd and Student Council.
