Norgate Xwemélch’stn Community Elementary
North Vancouver School District

Mission Statement:

The Norgate Xwemélch’stn learning community works together to support students’ academic, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual well-being.  We strive to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring people who demonstrate intercultural respect and understanding.

This statement aligns with our values as educators and articulates a vision for the skills and dispositions we aim to help your children develop.  Through partnership with you, their families, we will support your children’s well-being and help them find balance.  And, by providing them rich learning experiences at school and in the community we can share our collective wisdom and expand the children’s capacity to think critically and creatively, so that they may choose to act compassionately. 

We are an International Baccalaureate Candidacy School offering the Primary Years Programme.

There are currently no announcements.
