MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM

Grades 4-9

We are up for the challenge of engaging the Middle years students!  The KDS Middle Years Team is a team of dedicated, caring teachers committed to your student’s success.​

We prioritize:

  • Connection, then content.

  • Flexibility and choice.

  • Project based learning and individualized educational opportunities.

  • 21st century learning, building skills in communication, critical thinking, creative and innovative thinking, and personal and social responsibility.

  • Integrated curriculum, which aims to inspire students to learn while having fun.

  • Opportunities to connect with other learners during  our virtual meet ups and f2f collaboration times, with campuses located in both Fernie and Cranbrook.

  • A truly inclusive educational environment, where all learners have a chance to learn at their required pace. Success over schedule.

  • Outdoor Ed Connections!  Opportunities to take the learning outside and apply it in real situations while creating an appreciation for the natural environment that makes up the Kootenays.

  • Access to Special Education resources and support.

  • First Nations (Aboriginal Education) resources, funding, tutoring support, and cultural events.
