Welcome to Tipaskan school! Our staff is committed to providing a high quality learning environment that is safe, caring, healthy, diverse, inclusive and equitable. In our positive environment students and staff are provided with the tools to flourish and fulfill their potential.
We believe that the community, especially our student’s parents, are our partners in assisting the students with their learning journey. We are committed to building relationships with parents and operating in a climate of mutual respect and trust. Therefore, we welcome parental input and assistance and we invite you to become engaged and actively involved. Please check SchoolZone for regular updates regarding your child’s education.
We live in an ever changing, interconnected world, in which students must be prepared to be literate, lifelong learners who are able to tackle complex problems. As such, we engage our students, wholistically, in learning opportunities that are meaningful and enable our students to collaborate, think critically, globally, and understand the complexities of the 21st century world. Consequently, there are many leadership and service opportunities for our students. We involve them actively in goal setting, assessment for learning and being responsible, with our support, for their own growth and education. Clearly, we embody our motto to live, learn and lead.
