Together we . . . LEARN, SUCCEED, LEAD


At École Edwards we develop and empower leaders and learners. Together we recognize and celebrate the success of everyone. Our learners are prepared to be leaders for life.


Come to Edwards to find the leader in you.
Leave with the tools to be a leader for life.

  • We believe that reading is the foundation for successful life-long learning.
  • We believe that students’ needs differ and it is our responsibility to help each learner reach his or her own personal excellence.
  • We believe that through our Leader in Me initiative, which teaches our learners the 7 Habits of highly effective people, we will succeed in empowering each student to be a leader in their own way.

Unique Features of our school include:

  • K-4 dual track school (French Immersion/English) with a real sense of community
  • Leader in Me school which means we use the 7 Habits to develop strong student leadership
  • Focus on differentiated instruction – meeting the needs of all learners
  • Increased accessibility of a variety of technology to enhance and accelerate teaching and learning
  • Outstanding music program in both French and English that has been recognized provincially
  • Civically minded and environmentally aware – dedicated to improving the world we live in through a variety of initiatives
  • Committed parental/guardian support and involvement

Quotes from Parent Advocates

“Our family has been Learning, Succeeding, and Leading at Edwards for 5 years. We are tremendously grateful to be part of a school community in which the values we practice at home are also lived out at school. We see our children making proactive choices for themselves and growing their relationships in healthy ways by considering others’ needs, and know that this is partly due to the leadership environment at Edwards. We know that the foundation our kids have built here will serve them well as they continue to lead in middle school and beyond!” ~ Michelle I.

“We have been a part of the École Edwards community for 5 years now. What a fantastic environment for our children to learn in. We love how welcoming and friendly the learners, staff, educators and administration are at Edwards. The Leader in Me has given them the skills to be the leaders of tomorrow. They don't just learn about the seven habits at school, they put them into action in everything they do at Edwards.” ~ Kristal F.
