We are a learning community that embraces diversity, honours relationship and prepares all learners for a changing world. Our mission is to work with our educational partners to develop responsible, compassionate citizens and successful lifelong learners.
The Comox Valley is known as the “Valley of the Festivals” for our lively and vibrant arts and cultural scene. We are home to Vancouver Island’s largest provincial park, and residents and tourists enjoy easy access to freshwater lakes and streams, the ocean, and many areas to golf, mountain bike, hike and explore our beautiful landscape.
We offer specialty programs in Aboriginal education, French immersion, fine arts, distance education through CoolSchool, and Montessori. We also offer a program for international students and Strongstart, a family learning centre.
We value and believe in:
- trusting relationships based on respect, integrity and ethical behaviour;
- an environment that motivates and engages learners;
- innovation and creativity;
- strong partnerships, especially between home and school;
- accountability and shared responsibility;
- individual, professional and organizational growth; and
- the celebration of accomplishment.
