    Excellent caring staff. So much to offer students in curricular and extra curricular. Amazing special need/ speech teachers. If u come to Ottawa area you definately want your kids going there. Better then a private school anyday!

    we are very pleased at how our children are adjusting and excelling at this school. The teachers are amazing at keeping in constant communication with parents. The principle is still new at this district but really seems to know how important staff and students are to him. What a wonderful school Thank-you for teaching my children!
