Middle School Grade Reconfiguration

Dear Parents and Guardians,

You may be aware that the CBVRSB has approved a grade reconfiguration for schools within its region.  In September 2015, schools will be organized as follows: Primary to grade 5 Elementary Schools, grade 6 to 8 Middle Schools, and grade 9 to 12 High Schools beginning in September 2015.

Middle school students are in grades 6-8, and between the ages of 11 and 15.  The Board recognizes the unique needs of this group of learners and carefully plans programming to support their gradual growth toward independence.  Grade 9 students will benefit from exposure to expanded program opportunities within the high school context.

The overarching goal of changing to these configurations is to offer the best possible opportunity for students and to meet their academic, emotional, and social needs.

The recommendation to move to a Middle School model across all schools will provide an equitable, consistent program across the region. 

Additional information, answers to frequently asked questions and key dates will be communicated through the usual sources including school newsletters, school website, school board website and social media sites.  Please continue to check these sources for other information about transitions as well as transition activities.

Host Families-International Student Program

The Bring the World Home Campaign was officially launched on Tuesday January 13. The goal of this campaign is to create more awareness about the NSISP and the opportunity to host international students. In doing so this is beneficial to your school and community. Please visit the link below for more information regarding becoming a host family.

Thank you for your interest in the International Student Program.


At 9:00am, all entrance doors will be locked. All visitors to the school are required to check-in at the main office. Students, parents, and visitors are asked to use the main entrance when entering the school.

Parents are welcome at all times; we ask, however, that you do not proceed to or interrupt a teacher’s class and that you adhere to the School Board policy regarding the non-use of electronic devices and more specifically, smartphone usage. The office can arrange that you see a teacher when the need arises. Appointments are preferred.
