Salt Spring Elementary

Be Caring, Be Respectful, Be Safe

Located in the heart of Ganges, SSE enjoys easy access to the local pool, public library, community theatre, parks, forests and beaches. Walking field trips are a big part of the school experience for our students. With two lush gardens, a garden program for every class, and an outdoor classroom, our school community is committed to providing outdoor, place-based learning opportunities for students. We have a dedicated PAC and enjoy partnerships with several community organizations including Big Brothers/Sisters, The Circle, and The Salt Spring Conservancy. SSE is a vibrant and dynamic learning community that is committed to ensuring students experience an inclusive, equitable, and welcoming school. We believe in delivering high quality curricular and core-competency educational experiences for students to support their pathway to ultimately crossing the stage at graduation with dignity, purpose and options.
