With a population of 641 students and 69 staff members, École Laura Secord Elementary is a large and diverse school. Our students speak various languages, reflecting our inclusive atmosphere.

Our students thrive in experiential learning, with visits from performers, student-led assemblies, and technology integration. Clubs, sports teams, and field trips enrich our students' experiences, fostering a holistic approach to education. Our commitment to ongoing learning is evident through staff participation in various professional development opportunities.
