Our Philosophy & About our School
Creating a positive school culture through opportunities for success, supportive relationships, and high expectations.
As a team, we build relationships with our students and community to foster a safe, supportive and creative learning environment that ensures each child successfully reaches their social, emotional, and intellectual potential as lifelong learners.
We understand the importance of providing our students with an environment of trust, co-operation, and respect. We recognize that each child is unique and special with their own potential for growth and success. At Homesteader we celebrate our cultural diversity and promote a sense of community in all classrooms. Students are engaged in their learning through the use of technology, hands-on activities, and co-operative learning activities. Homesteader staff members are committed to continuous professional improvement and model life-long learning. We value our relationships with our school community and recognize the importance of open communication among parents, students, and staff.
Homesteader School is located in the south Clareview area. The community contains a mixture of single-family homes and high-density housing. We are an optimal enrolment school, offering programming for our community students but we welcome students from other communities into our Opportunity program.
We are an Apple school that promotes healthy eating, fitness, and mental health. We have an active School Council which has been incredibly supportive of the many initiatives happening at Homesteader.
