We offer an inclusive place of learning where every child matters. Our learning is grounded by Sḵwx̱wú7mesh ways of knowing, language and culture at Xwemélch’stn Etsimxwawtxw. Teachers weave cultural knowledge into daily instruction. Students participate in a Sḵwx̱wú7mesh language focus class and land-based learning daily.
Our Teachers’ plan and deliver cross curricular content guided by the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Syelánem (Squamish seasonal rounds and cultural teachings), aligned with the Ministry of Education learning standards required for all BC schools. The primary focus is a balanced literacy framework and numeracy as firm foundations for learning. These foundational skills offer our students the confidence to be successful in all areas of their learning.
Our approach is student focused, strength based, multisensory and inquiry-based learning. We offer small class sizes, and access to additional learning support for all students within our inclusive learning community.
