Our School

We acknowledge that our learning is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory. We thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us and recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Quick Facts

  • Our school welcomes approximately 125 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 each year.

  • We offer Alternative programming for full-day bilingual Kindergarten, and English with Core French.

  • After Grade 6, students attend Summit Alternative School or the intermediate school closest to their place of residence.

Mission Statement

Our school focus is to create a safe and caring environment that allows all students, staff, and community members to express themselves confidently and be celebrated for all aspects of their identities. We believe that students need to experience a true sense of belonging, rather than “fitting in” to an existing system. Student voice and creating the spaces for each student to achieve their full potential are foundational at our school.

About Our School

Lady Evelyn’s Alternative program has been a successful reality for over 30 years. Although the following characteristics are found in many individual classrooms in both alternative and non-alternative schools, they are the foundation of the Alternative Education philosophy. This philosophy is implemented through a partnership of shared responsibility among staff, students and parents. The seven alternative program tenets are:

1. Cooperation and teamwork
2. Innovative approaches
3. Balanced student-directed and teacher-directed learning
4. Multi-aged groupings
5. Integrated curriculum
6. Family and community-centered school environment
7. Ongoing assessment and evaluation
