Mountain Elementary is a vibrant K-5 school nestled in picturesque Mountain Village on Sumas Mountain.  Opened in 1992, the staff, students and families have established this elementary school as a school of excellence.  Mountain Elementary is a safe school, with high behavioral expectations and standards.  Students are actively taught appropriate social skills and they are reinforced through the use of school wide behavior support systems.

We strive to give our children a balanced educational program.  A highly skilled and caring staff delivers classroom instruction in the core subject areas.  Language Arts programs boast a mix of the traditional and current literacy practices.  Students make impressive gains yearly in Mathematics and consistently score at or above age expectations in the province of British Columbia in both Mathematics and Language Arts.   Hands on Science experiments and Social Studies projects, direct teaching, research and community outings are highlights for learning.  All students are involved in a rich physical education program.
