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. Our teachers strive to provide individualized learning in their classrooms, and our elementary school is supported by three educational assistants and an English Language Learner (ELL) assistant.

Our school is able to offer a wide variety of co-curricular activities, including sports (gymnastics, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track and field, tennis and badminton), and various clubs including yearbook, contemporary band (SWAT), Green Team (environment care), school newsletter and others. 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 see 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.

Deer Lake is pleased to host a licensed Before School (7-8 am) and After School Care (3:15-5:30 pm) every day for families who need to register for this service.
