International Mindedness

There are many things throughout our educational program and school that help students learn about the world. Within each unit of inquiry students explore issues of local and global significance. We also learn about our connection around the world by learning about the diverse heritage of our students and staff by using the Heritage Wall (pictured below). Students are also welcome to share their family's heritage story on the morning announcements.

As well as developing our language in English, all students learn Mandarin Chinese. We also encourage and celebrate our multilingual students that even speak a third or fourth language.

International Prize : This Prezi was created by students in Mrs. Krol's fith grade.
