Principal's Message

Welcome to Nationview Public School!

Nationview is a K-6 school located in the village of South Mountain. We have over 200 students, and we offer both French Immersion (K-5 for 2017-18) and a Core Program.

There is a proud tradition of community involvement and a warm and welcoming atmosphere at Nationview. When I first visited Nationview, I was warmly welcomed by the children, staff and the parents.   As we move into my third year with the school, this feeling of being welcomed by students who are engaged in their learning, respectful and proud to be a Red Knight has continued. This is an amazing school with great children, parents and staff. Our parent volunteers are always in the school either helping with hot lunch, volunteering for special events or reading with our children each and every day. I am so pleased to be a part of this incredible community school.

We always encourage our parents to become involved in school life at Nationview. School Council elections are held every fall with meetings on a monthly basis, typically the second Tuesday of the month.  The research is clear - when parents, students, teachers and administrators work together, collectively we create the best opportunities for our students to learn and grow. We invite you to join our amazing team in whatever way you can.

Our School Improvement Plan is posted, with our two goals focusing on problem solving in mathematics and our writing  skills.  Our teams are incorporating Learning goals and Success Criteria to help guide their instruction and the children’s learning. Of course, an effective school is not built on academics alone, extra-curricular opportunities are essential for students to fully develop as people. We offer students a good balance of athletic, arts and club  activities that span all grades.

Caring, Fairness, Empathy, Honesty, Perseverance, Resilience, Responsibility, Respect, Courage and Generosity are the values that we emphasize as a school community. We ask students to demonstrate these values in all ways and we celebrate examples of this happening throughout the school year. What for your child to bring home a “You’ve Been Caught Being a Character” sticker.

Best wishes for a great year at Nationview !
