We at Neqweyqwelsten School, will support fostering independent students by setting high expectations for continuous mastery of learning by providing quality instruction in a positive, safe environment and home support that is healthy, consistent and celebrates success.
We believe that education is the process of becoming knowledgeable about oneself and the world. Education is a holistic, life-long endeavor, which supports students' intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual and physical development. We believe that every individual is unique and capable. We believe that learning comes most easily to children who have pride in themselves, their culture and their community.
We support our children in becoming self-aware and independently able.
We believe that this education will develop positive attitudes and well grounded understandings, which will enable our children to act in ways that strengthen their relationships with themselves, their families, and the world.
We believe that this education will enable them to contribute to the preservation of the natural environment and well being of all people.
This describes the staff’s understanding of the purpose of Neqweyqwelsten School:
"Maintain high expectations for continuous learning through quality instruction, supportive home environments and celebrations of success."
Welcome to a new school year. Our school is full again this year. We are getting inquiries and applications from parents wanting to enroll their children in Neqweyqwelsten School, but due to lack of space we are not able to do so.
We are fortunate to have a staff that are well qualified, but also have been with us for many years. We also have a very supportive group of Parents. An important part of success in our school is communication. Report cards are coming in November but do feel free to contact your child’s teacher you need information about the school or your child.
