About our School
Greystone Heights School embodies learning and teaching as its central and principle endeavours. It is located in a well-established neighbourhood close to the University of Saskatchewan, the Field House (a central sports complex in Saskatoon), and linked by infrastructure to all areas of our city. Our school shares with Saskatoon an expansive area for outdoor activities containing soccer fields, a baseball diamond, an outdoor hockey rink, and a creative play structure.
 
At Greystone Heights School there are many opportunities for choice and innovation as we strive to provide a learning environment that responds to the diversity of needs, interests, and talents of each individual student in every classroom.
 
Our staff models lifelong learning and connects with students in a unique way to reveal students' passions for learning.
 
Our staff supports students in the development of understandings and a repertoire of skills that enable them to embrace the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. The work we do in our classrooms reflects the long-term goal of developing students' self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-directedness. These qualities of independent learning are balanced and blended with the collaborative and cooperative skills and attitudes needed to support interdependent relationships and efforts.
 
The quality of these experiences -- and the level of excellence achieved -- are supported by a school culture characterized by respectful and trusting relationships, a shared vision, and a climate that makes children feel valued, safe, and accepted.
