Results Speak for Themselves...
The School District of Whiteshell is committed to providing a strong beginning foundation for our youngest students, with an age and developmentally appropriate support throughout each grade level, allowing our graduates to have an equally strong finish to secondary schooling.
100% of our students have exceeded expected readiness for entry into Grade One, thanks to an outstanding early childhood focus.
At the grade 12 level, our students have outscored the provincial averages in almost every strand of Language Arts and Mathematics, in most areas by 10% and in some areas by as much as 40%.
What makes our academic results so impressive is the fact that our busy learners are excelling in the classroom, while also fully engaging in all of the wonderful life-skills programming, sports and activities available to them.
It's about balance and commitment to ourselves.
