Welcome to the Island Public Natural Science School!
Presently our school serves 274 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 to prepare our youth for their role as active, thoughtful, socially responsible citizens. 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, caring, safe, relationship-based environment where students learn to value one another and build the skills necessary to self-regulate their learning through inquiry. All students, staff, IPS families and community members are valued and respected for their diversity and uniqueness. Creating the conditions that reflect a relationship-based approach, IPS is able to continue to focus on student well-being and achievment. We teach acceptance, promote individuality and provide exemplary programming for our students by instilling critical thinking & inquiry, self-regulation and a love of learning. It will be our collective efficacy that allows all children to learn successfully and attain high levels of academic and social success.
