Please join us for this year's Open House to learn about our educational program, curriculum information, school-wide expectations and how to support your child's academic journey. For parents with students in grade 3 and our Middle Years Programme (grades 6-8), Open House will start in the cafeteria with a general session led by members of the school leadership team. Important information regarding third grade promotion requirements and IB requirements for MYP students will be communicated. We look forward to seeing you at Open House!

The Open House events originally scheduled for families with children in Kindergarten, Grades 1 and 2 and MYP 1 (Grade 6) and MYP 2 (Grade 7) have been removed for the first week in September and have been rescheduled, as published on our website and below.
