Backing onto the expansive Lakeview Park in southeast Saskatoon, École Lakeview School offers students the opportunity to learn in either of Canada's official languages English or French. In 2009 we were fortunate enough to introduce Late French Immersion (Grade 6 entry). Students from various communities surrounding Lakeview are provided transportation to participate in our immersion programs.
École Lakeview School is a large school with approximately 600 students, from Kindergarten to Grade 8. Our dedicated and experienced teaching staff offers strong academic programs across all grade levels. Our two current strategic priorities include continued growth for students in literacy and the development of shared beliefs and understandings about student learning.
Our school maintains a strong focus on experiential learning, making good use of the surrounding park and other outdoor facilities. Lakeview also celebrates the aesthetic talents of students, offering an impressive band and arts education program supplemented with an array of extracurricular performing opportunities. Other ways to become involved beyond the classroom include Space Club, Chess Club, and a large variety of sports teams.
École Lakeview School is proud of its strong sense of community celebrating diversity. Care Partner activities involving the pairing of older students with younger students happen on a regular basis. Students develop a strong commitment to helping each other and building a peaceful environment. Opportunities abound for students to take on leadership roles through such initiatives as Leadership Corp, Destination Conservation, Green Team, or by assisting the librarian, working with hot lunches, or by being part of our school's recycling group.
By working to meet the needs of our families, we are now home to the Extended School Day Program (7:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m.), and the KinderCare Program (for kindergarten children who stay at École Lakeview School beyond their regular school day). Because we see ourselves as a family, we make sure to include children from these programs in as many of our school day activities as possible.
We invite you to visit École Lakeview School and meet with us. We are proud of our students' achievements. We are, likewise, proud of the safe and caring environment our school provides so students can achieve to their fullest potential.
