Herbert Spencer Elementary

École Herbert Spencer Elementary School offers its students an outstanding educational experience. A broad, fully supportive group of teachers, specialists, support staff, administrators, individual parents and the parent advisory committee ensures that students are given a rich variety of knowledge, experience and opportunity that supports and encourages them towards excellence in everything that they do.

The school has established a School Mission Statement that states that "The staff at Herbert Spencer will provide a positive educational experience for students. We expect that students will acquire the attitudes, skills and knowledge they require to become successful and contributing citizens. We hope that through our goals we will further develop students' capacities and successes in the areas of literacy, numeracy and social responsibility."

To guide student behavior and interaction, the school has also established a Code of Conduct based on Respect, Responsibility and Relationships. Students are encouraged to conduct themselves in a polite and responsible manner in class, on school property and in all school related activities away from the school to develop considerate and sensitive students who are aware of others’ thoughts, feelings and backgrounds. It is important that all of the community contributes to a positive school environment.
