Welcome to ESQE! We are a school of about 400 children from Kindergarten to Gr. 6 located in downtown Squamish. We offer both the English and the French Immersion programs. At our school, we embrace and celebrate the many cultural backgrounds that the families come from. As well, I am proud to be part of a dedicated staff who deeply care about our children’s physical, academic and social emotional development. We believe in equity where all learners have a voice and choice in their learning with meaningful learning opportunities such as inquiry or project based learning. We value aboriginal teachings, outdoor learning and trauma-informed practice. We work with the child, district staff, families, community partners to meet the learning needs of every child. We want our school to be an inclusive and safe space for all children.
