Elementary Alternative Schools

We know that students learn in a variety ways and thrive in different learning environments, which is why we have a number of elementary alternative schools that offer students and their parents something different from mainstream schooling.

Each alternative school is unique, with a distinct identity and approach to curriculum delivery. They typically feature small student populations, a commitment to innovative programs, and significant community involvement. While the schools offer Ministry approved courses, they are delivered in learning environments that are flexible and meet the needs of individual students.

We have a wide range of alternative schools that offer a variety of different program delivery models. If your child is interested in attending an alternative school, you can visit a number of schools before choosing the one that best meets their needs.
