Small Classes; Solid Support for Learning
Small class sizes and low student-to-teacher ratios, along with solid educational support, allow every student to succeed. Our 2013-14 class size average was 15.7 students in a class. Individual student needs for support are met in a variety of ways, including multi-grade peer interaction within schools, community-based work experiences, and time spent with community elders and infants alike.
Strong Student Success
Our students perform consistently at or above provincial levels based on graduation and success rates and provincial assessments. For more information, check out our Achievement Contract.
They graduate with strong academic skills as well as a secondary school career filled with athletics, fine and performing arts, trades and skills training and/or outdoor education experiences, depending on their individual post-secondary path.
Transitions to Post-Secondary and the World of Work
SD 10 students go on after graduation to garner success at all the major Canadian universities including McGill, University of Toronto, University of Waterloo, Queen’s, University of BC, Simon Fraser University and University of BC – to name a few. Our students excel in their studies at Rhodes Scholars at Oxford, and become top-notch journeymen and tradespeople through their education at our local Selkirk College, Okanagan College, and Thompson Rivers University and beyond.
Personalized Pathways for Every Student
In the Arrow Lakes school district, our aim is that every student is given the personal attention they need to succeed. We are committed to finding more and more ways to help our students discover and build their own passions and gifts, and grow in confidence as learners!
