At Gold Bar School, personal excellence is the standard. We believe that teaching and learning are the most important activities that take place in our school, accomplished through a partnership with student, staff, parent and community. We believe each child is unique and valued for his strengths, interests and needs, each child can experience success as a learner, each child needs a safe and secure environment in which to learn, and that learning truly is a life long process. We are committed to a problem solving approach to learning, and to maximizing student engagement while increasing student ownership for their learning. We believe in setting the highest expectations for all staff, students and community members to be responsible citizens, respectful of individuals and their differences.
