Welcome to Meadowridge

A message from our Head of School

Welcome to Meadowridge, an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum World School supporting a growing community of learners from Junior Kindergarten through to Graduation. While we have enjoyed celebrating the outstanding academic results of our children, our greatest sense of pride comes from supporting their development into kind, morally bound, and critically thinking leaders in our society. We learn how to care for ourselves and others while embracing change and developing the confidence to not only meet the future, but also to create it.

We have built a community of families with shared values and beliefs who work collaboratively with the school to better our community, and the world. Together, we set a culture with conscious caring, academic rigour, clear and high expectations, constant communication, and intercultural understanding. As you begin to acquaint yourself with the school, please take time to talk to the children, parents, families, and staff. They are the best ones to speak to the culture and experience that is Meadowridge. Be sure to inquire about the athletics, arts, service opportunities, leadership, and outdoor programming.

Highly collaborative teaching practices, custom designed and built facilities, engaging programs, and a collective approach to leadership set the foundation for an exceptional experience.

Our practices in teaching and learning are exemplified by our outstanding academic results and are achieved through the active engagement of the head, heart, and hands. Simply put, we believe children learn best when they are intellectually challenged, emotionally engaged, and physically involved. Our community is developed through a series of strategic engagements designed to bring people closer together through mutual understanding. Highly collaborative teaching practices, custom designed and built facilities, engaging programs, and a collective approach to leadership set the foundation for an exceptional experience. Our authentic focus on the experiential education and the environment is central to all our programs and is a critical element as we strive towards our Mission: Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community.

Welcome to Meadowridge.

Mr. Scott Banack
Head of School
