Nootka Elementary is a K-7 public school on the edge of
Renfrew Park in East Vancouver. We have a dedicated staff, an active parent community, and many other
strengths. We are proud to host three distinct
programs and serve a total population of more
than 400 children and their families:
The Classic Program delivers the full, provincially-mandated curriculum with an emphasis on academics, athletics and the
arts to reach our diverse student population. Creativity, a dedicated teaching staff and
the pursuit of excellence have long been hallmarks of this part of our
The District Fine Arts
Program offers the core academic curriculum while devoting eighty
minutes per week to dance,
drama, music and the visual arts. Teachers with specialities in each of these areas
cooperate to deliver passionate instruction.
The THRIVE Program
is an alternate program
designed to enable kids with dyslexia (and other forms
of LD) to build their skills and experience success in school. THRIVE students have won numerous awards for their documentary film-making over the years.
The staff and
students of all three programs
work together and strive to build a close-knit, caring
community. We are working to create a stimulating
learning environment and to promote
literacy, academic growth and social responsibility.
