Our Purpose... To achieve a wide range of knowledge leading you to a future filled with opportunities, and allowing you to express your inner voice to the world and beyond.
Our Colors...

We choose maroon as our primary color for the reason of its meaning. Maroon is a very dominating color. It shows energy and motivates individuals to take action. It also makes people have quick decisions and increase expectations. We believe this goes perfect with the purpose of our school. We want our students to show lots of energy towards their motivation to learn new topics. We want our students to be quick when it come to thinking and able to take action in all kinds of scenarios. We also choose the color grey as it is a neutral color. This shows an overall mood of just calm.

Our Mascot...

As our mascot we choose the polar bear. We choose the polar bear because of its symbolic meaning. The polar bear knows the wait is worthwhile. They don't rush when accomplishing tasks. They take their time so things get done efficiently and to high quality. We feel this matches our purpose because we want our students to accomplish tasks at high levels for a better future,

Our Physical Enviroment

Open Concept

Having an open concept building allows us to more natural light giving an overall better mood. This doesn’t mean classes would be held in one big room. Classes are still being held in a room but with bigger windows and if available skylights for more natural light.

Multi-Functional Gym

We offer a huge multi-functional gym with a wide variety of up to date exercise and sport equipment. People should have access to exercise equipment all the time. Students should be interested and/or dedicated to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This gym would allow individuals to do so.

Food and beverage service

We offer food and beverage service for students and staff. We serve a variety of meals for breakfast and lunch as well as snacks throughout the day. We believe students are able to learn and concentrate better on a full stomach. This food service would also provide students with healthy meals to help with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

High Tech Labs

We have high tech computer labs, science labs and a resource center being a quiet place to read, study or hangout with friends during lunch or break. Having High tech labs and a big source of resources allows students to get more hands on with their education. Having more experiences allows students to be ahead of the game moving on to University/College.

Colour Scheme

The overall colour of the building is kept the same throughout. No random or out of place change of colour is needed. Primary colour being maroon and gray as well as neutral colours like black and white. We believe having a well thought out colour scheme sets a positive mood for the students and staff. If everyone is happy the day goes well.

Teachers & Staff Demeanor

Teachers work with students to plan trips and special events in there club or team. Depending on how each club represents the school name, donations from the school are given out.

Attitude - Work

Teachers will have a positive attitude towards the subject they instruct. We feel that if a teacher is passionate for the subject they teach, the students will feel more engaged and ready to learn.

Attitude - Students

Our teachers will always have a positive attitude toward their students as well as students outside of their class. Our teachers will show the same respect to the students as long as the students show respect to them. When we hire our teachers we ask them about what they think about kids. We believe if you want to be an instructor, the number one thing is you have to like kids. If you don't have feel passionate about working with kids, you have no place in education.

Our teachers are evaluated by their own students. Each student has a chance to explain their opinion on their teachers. Students must state things like work efficiency, teacher style and attitude.
