Murrayville Academy Upper Elementary


Grade 4, 5, 6, and 7 students work in collaboration with the experienced and well-trained teachers in small groups to cover the core competencies and Big Ideas required by the BC Ministry of Education. Our enriched French program exceeds the Ministry requirements. Our "Writer's Workshops" resulted in the top award for grade 3 short story composition in Canada and second prize for grade 5 in 2018.

Through the process of experimentation, inquiry, project-based learning and hands on activities, the students become capable, confident learners. The opportunity to work and collaborate in small groups through personal and social interactions support the development of a strong sense of self.

Arts in education is integrated in the daily curriculum. Art, music and enriched drama programs offer opportunities for students to express their creativity. Extra curricular drama opportunities include an annual theatrical production with opportunities for students to get involved with acting, technical support (lighting and sound) as well as set design.

Our unique environment promotes intellectual, emotional, social and physical development for the “whole” child, while also promoting self-confident, successful lifelong learners.
