Welcome to the Lower School
Welcome to the Lower School of SJK where our goal is to foster in our students a love of learning, and prepare them to GO BEYOND.
The Lower School is a dynamic, inquiry-based learning environment, where students are actively engaged in challenging classes and teachers understand and value individual learning styles and strengths.
SJK is the only school in the region to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). This program, alongside the Ontario curriculum, helps students develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills through a trans-disciplinary approach to learning while making holistic connections across traditional subjects.
Academic instruction is balanced with a robust after school co-curricular program, which begins in Junior Kindergarten and results in the nurturing and development of the whole child. Leadership opportunities are provided to the students at a young age; opportunities that encourage responsibility and prepare individuals for the world beyond the classroom.
Come visit our Lower School and see why our students do not want to leave at the end of the day!
