school profiles

Please note | we’re building a new interactive mapping tool to make it easier to find schools using a familiar web interface, and will no longer be using the maps on this page. Because of that, these interactive maps show the boundaries for the 2013-14 school year, and may not be accurate for the 2014-15 school year. For current information, please refer to the “find a school by address” tool to find your designated school, see the list of schools by residential district and grade, or visit the school profile of the school you’re interested in to see the walk zone map in PDF. Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to sharing our new site with you soon.

School Mission

Mission:

Elboya School promotes a safe, secure and supportive community. Elboya fosters lifelong learning and integrity, and recognizes the diversity of individuals thus enabling them to reach their full potential through learning excellence and building community.

Purpose:

Elboya School, a Kindergarten to Grade 9 school, which draws from a variety of communities, offers a school-wide English Program, Grade 5 to 9 Continuing and a Grade 7 to 9 Late French Immersion Program. As an extension of the home/family environment, the school builds upon students' broad backgrounds and experiences to help them connect this learning to their school learning. High, consistent expectations are held for student effort, student success, and student leadership.

The best possible learning environment is one of cooperation and teamwork where there is caring, trust, and respect. This environment encourages risk taking within a dynamic, challenging climate which develops creativity, respects a variety of learning styles, builds a positive self-image, develops a love of learning, and recognizes that mistakes are a part of the learning process.

Lifelong learning requires personal ownership and responsibility for excellence through goal setting and decision making. Academic, artistic, environmental, musical, physical, social, technological, and critical thinking skills support such learning.

The education of our children is a shared mission involving parents, students, staff, and community. The needs of all are met in a personalized learning environment which and encourages optimism, a sense of belonging, and fairness. The relationship between the home and the school is a close partnership developed through shared philosophy, expertise, and an ethical perspective.

The guiding principles of Learning Excellence and Building Community are filters for our work together. ELBOYA SCHOOL HONOUR CODE - TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF, TAKE CARE OF EACH OTHER, TAKE CARE OF THE COMMUNITY. One of the most distinctive features of the Elboya Community is the extraordinary degree to which students are responsible for themselves, each other and their community.
