School Philosophy

The purpose of Kildonan-East is to develop a community of informed and caring individuals who are academically, socially, emotionally, and physically prepared for responsible participation in an ever-changing dynamic world. We believe that all students strive for excellence, and we place great emphasis on producing higher caliber graduating students.

In order to achieve this purpose, we believe that the student's welfare must be of highest priority. Therefore, the educational system must address the needs of the students that it is designed to serve. We are committed to a comprehensive program that accommodates these unique needs and changing interests of our diverse student body. Kildonan-East provides educational programs in an invigorating atmosphere that fosters skill building, problem-solving, creativity, and critical thinking. The school promotes learning processes that cultivate self-awareness, individual worth, tolerance, and respect for others.

Kildonan-East provides a wide range of academic and technical programs that emphasize development of individual potential and prepare students for post secondary institutions and employment. The school strives to develop graduating students who will become good citizens and who contribute to the welfare of others in our democratic society.

We believe that students must be provided with an appropriate array of opportunities which encourage student participation and involvement in the decision-making process. Only through the continued involvement from students, the staff, and the community, can Kildonan-East realize its desired goals.
