Supporting social, emotional and academic enrichment…

We are home to more than 410 Kindergarten to Grade 5 students in the historic Sapperton neighbourhood in New Westminster. At Skwo:wech Elementary School, we are proud to offer diverse programs that support the social, emotional and academic enrichment of students. We feature both Montessori and regular programs, and host the StrongStart Early Learning Centre. Our Goal at Skwo:wech is to work together to foster a positive school community of socially and emotionally connected learners.
