Elementary School - Where it all begins

Elementary School at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School offers Kindergarten through Grade 6.

STS Elementary School students develop a love of learning in a safe, nurturing, inquiry-centred, and technology-rich environment. Grounded in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) students learn to challenge themselves and apply critical thinking strategies to enable them to meet their potential in all areas. Discovering their skills and knowledge in art, French, music, physical education, and a wide-variety of clubs promotes a well-balanced education.

Students have the opportunity to explore our beautiful rural campus learning and playing in the fresh, open-air and also participating in our Outdoor Education program. These activities develop curiosity, independence, and an appreciation for our natural environment, while building lasting friendships and memories.
