Crawford Bay Elementary-Secondary School is a small, rural, K-12 school on Kootenay Lake, British Columbia, with approximately 75 students. As a community of learners, we aim to:
- Balance foundational skill development and prescribed learning outcomes with personal exploration and inquiry;
- Engage our community and region in the learning process and school programming, with the classroom considered the ‘base camp’; and
- Evolve the idea of supporting each student with a ‘Family Learning Plan’.
Our New Building
Crawford Bay School moved into brand new premises in the spring of 2009. We’re very proud of our new school, which won a 2009 award from Sustainable Architecture & Building Magazine (SABMag). For details of this award, click here.
Our community raised over $800,000 to include an early childhood centre, fitness centre, and three community-use rooms in the new building.
