  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    We are nestled in a beautiful and peaceful area and welcome students from a variety of communities.  Our school offers programming from Kindergarten through Grade 6.  

    We take pride in supporting all students, recognizing that each child has individual strengths and needs.  We strive to create meaningful and relevant learning experiences where students can apply their in-class experiences and concepts they've learned to real life situations. We also strive to build a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy through the various reading comprehension supports that we have in place. The ability to read, write, create meaning, think critically and communicate using evolving technologies and tools is essential to student success, especially in an ever-changing society.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Horse Hill school!  The 2019-20 school year promises to be an exciting and rewarding year!.  Our staff are committed to helping students discover their passions, explore their interests and uncover their strengths.  We will challenge students to be the best that they can be; to accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses; to celebrate successes, and to see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of the learning process. They will be asked to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others; and to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners.

Our staff supports all learners through an educational strengths-based approach where we collaborate, refine teaching practices and build engaging learning environments. Horse Hill staff is committed to continuous improvement and we are dedicated to a collaborative culture.  Each day we work together to achieve the collective goal  of academic success for all of our students!   With the dedicated efforts of an exemplary staff, and supportive and informed parents we can support our students through our shared expectations of academic, social and emotional success.  

If you are willing to volunteer your time to support school initiatives, please come and visit us at the school office. We encourage our families to check Schoolzone and Class Dojo regularly for school news, class news and district news.
