About Our School

We have been a vibrant neighbourhood school since 1958. Our school has evolved with our surrounding community and has been “a home away from home” for generations of students. We call our SAM Family “SAMily” with pride: It is observed in every classroom every day.


Kindergarten–Grade 6

Kindergarten–Grade 6

We offer programming for students in Kindergarten–Grade 6, including Academic Challenge & Enrichment programming for students in Grade 4-6. We are a friendly and welcoming community dedicated to meeting the diverse learning needs of all of our students.




Attendance Areas

Our school serves the neighbourhoods of Braeside, Parkwood, Sturgeon Point Villas and parts of Forest Lawn and Sturgeon Heights.

Academic Challenge & Enrichment


Academically-gifted students can achieve excellence in an environment that supports their unique intellectual, social and emotional needs. ACE is for students who learn rapidly, think abstractly and have strong abilities in general intellect, academics and creative thinking.
