Principal’s Message

Welcome to Ecole Brantford Elementary School!Kurt

Welcome to our Brantford School website. As you scroll through the information found here you will get a sense of all the amazing things that make Brantford such a wonderful learning community for our staff, students, parents, and outside partners.

Ecole Brantford Elementary was completely renovated and the new building was completed in 2010.  As a LEED school, the physical environment is meant to enhance student learning.  On any given day, you can see students from many classes and in different grades working in groups or individually in the common pods.

Ecole Brantford Elementary is a dual track school and began offering the Early French Immersion Program in September of 2010. Full immersion takes place from Kindergarten to Grade 3 and Grades 4 to 7 students spend approximately 20% of their learning in English.  Students then continue on to one of three Secondary French Immersion Programs from Grades 8-12.  Many of our French Immersion graduates have travelled the world, lived abroad and become leaders in their communities.

At Brantford we go out of our way to provide students with a safe and caring learning environment, while still setting reasonable standards for intellectual, physical, aesthetic, and social development. We offer various opportunities to develop critical thinking skills; a life-long enjoyment of learning, and an appreciation of an active and healthy lifestyle.

Through close collaboration with our amazing parent community, Brantford provides continued support for all our varied and unique students. Please explore our website to learn more about our school and members of the Brantford community. If you would like additional information beyond what’s available here, please contact me via email, phone or in person. I look forward to meeting with you at any time…my door is always open.
