Today’s Educational Support Professionals, or ESPs, do more than provide nutritious meals and transport our children to and from school; they also serve as positive role models for them.

Wednesday, November 18th is National Educational Support Professional’s Day. This is a day for recognizing the contribution ESPs make to education, and a time for all of us to say "thank you" for all they do to help our students every day.

Our Mission

Our vision is to guide learners as we develop the tools and mindsets to continually seek and understand the world and ourselves. Learners will demonstrate confidence,compassion and value diversity. Everyone will leave our school with the ability to apply, transfer and reflect on concept because we are motivated to ask questions and discover solutions.

  • Confidence is about trusting in yourself and your abilities with freedom from doubt.
  • Compassion is the awareness of someone’s suffering or discomfort and taking an action to make the situation better.
  • Diversity encompasses acceptance and respect but moves beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating the complexity of each individual.
  • Concepts refer to knowledge and ideas.
