Vision, Mission, Values & Welcome


To be recognized as the leading elementary school community in Canada in realizing the unique potential of each child.


Montcrest School is a co-educational community, small enough to honour the individual and big enough to provide an exceptional academic experience with balanced opportunities in leadership, the arts, and athletics. Our school challenges children to discover and acknowledge their own voices, so they can understand and make meaningful connections with the world.


At Montcrest we intentionally cultivate the development of respect, integrity, compassion, courage and curiosity in the members of our community, so they may foster a conscious, lifelong commitment to themselves, others, and the Earth.

At Montcrest School you instantly feel a sense of family and community.

Welcome to Montcrest!

At Montcrest, we believe every child is unique. We meet students where they are at, and provide individualized and specialized support to neurotypical students as well as those with learning and thinking differences. The individual attention that children receive academically and socially is one of the things that distinguishes Montcrest School.

Our students have opportunities to make authentic connections with the world through a meaningful academic program, exciting fine arts offerings, outreach programs, and a variety of co-curricular activities. They emerge as secure, self-directed young people, excited to take on new challenges with a deeper understanding of how they learn.

I hope that you enjoy your exploration of our website and I encourage you to visit us in person.

Warmest regards,

Patti MacDonald
Head of School
