Elementary Schools (Kindergraten to Grade 5)

The New Westminster School District has eight elementary schools all of which welcome international students. In accordance with district procedures, international students are placed in the grade level corresponding to their year of birth. Elementary children live with a parent or authorized legal guardian while studying in Canada.

Elementary students usually begin their studies in September, although mid-year enrolments are possible if space permits. All efforts will be made to place students in their catchment school or school of choice. Availability varies from year to year and not all requests can be accommodated.

International elementary students are integrated directly into regular classes, and given extra attention and support by teachers for language learning if required. New Westminster School District takes pride in offering nurturing learning environments for our students and every effort is made to make international students feel comfortable and welcome.
