In addition to the Elementary program, our school offers preschool to three and four year olds, a kindercare program, an out-of-school care program. These programs are offered in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, a privately owned company. We are also excited to have a Strong Start Center within our building for parents and preschoolers to enjoy together.
At A.S. Matheson it is our fundamental belief that all students can learn and that learning encompasses the whole child (social, emotional and intellectual development). We strive to help all students meet and/or exceed expectations in all areas of the curriculum. Setting high standards for students academically and behaviorally is helping us achieve higher results on standardized District and Provincial testing.
