Welcome to the Island Public Natural Science School!

Presently our school serves over 240 students from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6. We are a 'Community of Learners': students and their families, staff and our community work together to learn together. We focus on academic excellence by providing our students with the learning skills and work habits that they will use throughout schooling and adult life. We achieve this by collaborating and working together to create an inclusive, safe, friendly and stimulating environment where students learn to self-regulate their learning. All students, staff, IPS families and community members are valued and respected for their diversity and uniqueness. We teach acceptance, promote individuality and provide exemplary programming for our students by instilling critical thinking & inquiry, self-discipline and a love of learning. We believe that all children can learn successfully and attain high levels of academic and social success. A commitment to lifelong learning will continue to be the goal of our community.
