Island Public/Natural Science School is an exciting and engaging place to be. The geographic location, setting and its size provide a unique opportunity to foster environmental ethics and global awareness using the curriculum and the natural resources at hand. These three factors are also what creates a genuine and inclusive school community.
A typical day in the life of a student at the Island Public/Natural Science School begins one of two ways. Students living on the Island take the Ward's Island school bus to the school. Students living on the city side begin their day by taking the ferry across to catch the school busses that take them to school. Students return the same way.
When at school students are engaged in active hands-on learning, student-led inquiry and participate in a myriad of extra-curricular activities. Students are sure to find a place where they can learn a new skill or share their passion with other students. Staff and students have a shared sense of responsibility for the welfare and well-being of all of our students and this is fostered through cross-grade learning buddies.
