Welcome to SAM School. We are the neighbourhood school for Braeside, Parkwood, Sturgeon Point Villas and parts of Forest Lawn and Sturgeon Heights. We offer programming for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. 

SAM School proudly practices The Leader in Me and 7 Habits philosophy by respecting others' strengths and weaknesses and doing our best to develop leadership. We have a strong tradition of academic excellence, coupled with outstanding extra-curricular programming in fine arts and athletics! Stakeholder surveys are equally positive. We intend to maintain that high standard. We are proud of the leadership efforts of students, staff, parents and community members.

Effective communication between home and school is essential! Please visit the handbook at the beginning of the student agendas. Additional info is available through SAM School's website, Twitter feed, monthly newsletter, Facebook pages, school & classroom calendars and e-mails. Phone calls still work too! Pre-arranged appointments work best, but our administrative team will endeavour to attend to emerging issues as they arise. 

Take a look at our school brochure for more information!
