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. 

Norgate Xwemélch'stn Community Elementary is a candidate school* for the PYP. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.For further information about the IB and its programmes visit http://www.ibo.org/.
