About Us

We are a Kindergarten to Grade 6 school offering French Immersion and English programming to students in Kingston East. Our three-storey school was opened in 2013 and includes more than 34 classrooms, a variety of special purpose and resource rooms, a library/makerspace and 6,000-square-foot gymnasium. Our school is equipped with shared technology in every classroom (iPads and Chromebooks), allowing access to all. Our building features green construction to reduce energy use and waste production. The overall environmental footprint is reduced due in part to high efficiency heating/cooling systems, low-flow water fixtures and other sustainable-focused improvements.

We are fortunate to have a wonderful outdoor play area made possible thanks to a generous $252,000 donation from the Pittsburgh Community Benefit Fund. Our outdoor space includes three play structures, a soccer field, two basketball courts, a beach volleyball court, a tether ball court, a gravel walkway, and learning and grow gardens.
