Philosophy / Mission
McCaig Elementary School is committed to promoting the personal, social, and academic development of each child's potential.
Our mission is achieved by involving parents, teachers and other members of the school community in a spirit of enthusiasm, fostering respect and trust, keeping academic standards at the forefront, encouraging acceptance of cultural diversity, accepting individual learning styles, promoting extra curricular activities, stimulating students to explore, experiment and progress, and providing a supportive and accepting environment.
McCaig Elementary School provides a general education for 550 students from Kindergarten to Cycle Three. McCaig has been a vital part of Rosemère and surrounding communities for generations. The present building was built in 1956 and now serves the following communities: Rosemère, Lorraine, Terrebonne, Bois-des-Filion, the southern part of Blainville, and the eastern sector of Ste-Thérèse.
