Learn More about Kim O'Neil

Primary School is time for exploration and discovery. Students are given opportunities to flex their natural curiosity, their growing muscles and their social capabilities all in a day’s work. In Preschool and Junior Kindergarten, students are introduced to the fundamentals of learning which are building blocks for a more focused foundation of literacy skills, emerging mathematics, and hands-on science.

In Kindergarten, students work on mastering literacy skills, and are introduced to more complex math concepts. They also receive instruction with specialty teachers in art, music, and physical education, and French or Spanish.

Reading and writing and mathematical skill development are at the core of the educational experience for students in Grades 1 and 2, taught by dedicated teachers who focus on each student's individual needs. Students learn in an exuberant, safe learning environment, where they discover and learn with the support of their teachers and friends.
