Philosophy / Mission

GROWING TOGETHER - GRANDISSONS ENSEMBLE

Morin Heights Elementary School is focused on creating an environment that both respects the requirements of the current educational curriculum and keeps pace with students' evolving needs. Daily life at MHES reflects a strong sense of community. Newcomers quickly feel at home with us thanks to a dedicated and enthusiastic staff, respect for individual and cultural differences, and active parental participation both inside and outside the classroom. Our bilingual, nurturing environment allows children and adults to thrive together as we pursue the school's mission and work to:

  • Foster mutual respect among students, teachers, administrators, parents, support staff and other members of our school community.
  • Offer a wide range of learning experiences that allow all children to discover, develop and express their unique talents in academics, arts and athletics.
  • Seek out opportunities for students of various ages and levels to work together cooperatively and learn from one another.
  • Encourage our school and extended community to actively respect and nurture the environment.
  • Provide experiences that enable all of us to develop effective life skills such as learning to assume responsiblity for our choices.
