School Life

At Deer Lake School we are passionate about children! Our commitment to child-centred education leads us to adapt and change our educational offerings as society demands. Presently we use the inquiry-based model for learning in our classrooms K-12. Our teachers strive to provide individualised learning in every grade.

Our school offers a wide variety of co-curricular activities for every grade, including sports (gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track and field, tennis and badminton), and various clubs including robotics, math, chess, yearbook, and contemporary worship band (SWAT). 


There are co-curricular activities available periodically for Kindergarten-Grade 2 as well, by 6 week sessions that rotate yearly, that include gymnastics, drama & music, art & artists and a book club and author series. You can view the full 2019-2020 K-12 Co-Curricular calendar here.

Many of the after school co-curricular activities provide an opportunity to perform or compete at various community events.

Our high school is supported by an academic adviser, who helps support students in their course selection, graduation requirements and scholarship applications.
