At Dunsford District Elementary School, our goal is to ensure optimal student development through effective education within a safe and supportive learning environment.


At Dunsford District Elementary School we believe that:

  • our purpose is to educate children to be lifelong learners; to provide them with the skills, knowledge and values to make satisfying and worthwhile contributions to society and the future.
  • school must be a safe, inviting and dynamic place to learn where everyone feels welcome, cared for, valued and important.
  • the best interests of the student must be the reason behind all decisions and actions, and that shared decision-making should involve everyone involved in the school partnership.
  • effective communication is crucial to good school and community relations.
  • school is an integral part of the community and the community is an integral part of the school.
