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, and our elementary school is supported by five Education Assistants.

Our school offers a wide variety of co-curricular activities, 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.

Deer Lake is pleased to host a daily licensed Before School (7-8 am) and After School Care (3:15-6 pm) as well as Spring Break and Summer Day Camp programs for families who need to register for this service. Learn more about the program at Before & After School Care & Day Camps
