About Dorval Elementary School
Dorval Elementary School offers Kindergarten (K5) to Grade 6.
Our school is newly renovated. Our classrooms and learning commons were transformed into an innovative environment where our diverse learners can achieve their full potential.
We offer an extensive Music and Band Program. In the Fall of 2019 we opened ‘Le Lab’, a place and time for students to create, tinker, learn how to do something new, be challenged, have fun, explore, problem solve, imagine, build, draw, write, make, work with their hands, think critically, be persistent, make real-world connections, and use technology. This innovative class includes aspects of arts, media, science, language arts, and technology
We foster a strong partnership with the City of Dorval. Our students participate in many community events such as the Annual Dorval Remembrance Day ceremony. Our students are honoured to join veterans and dignitaries at the Remembrance Day Ceremony where they play an active role through song and poem contributions. Our students also participate in the Dorval tree lighting ceremony. They create waterproof Christmas ornaments and get Dorval residents in the holiday spirits as our choir sings a selection of holiday songs.
We care about our community. The last Thursday of each month is Thoughtful Thursday where students and staff bring in non-perishable food items in support of Dorval Community Aid.
At Dorval Elementary School: “We Care, Create, Explorons, sommes passionés, Découvrons, Wonder and Belong.”
The Quebec Education Program (QEP) defines course requirements, content, competencies, progressions of learning and the framework for the Evaluation of student learning.
An Immersion school teaches all core subjects in French from Kindergarten to grade 2. This means that students spend the majority of their week in French. Once the students reach grade 3, English Language Arts is introduced and math is also taught in English until grade 6. This means that, from Grade 3 to Grade 6, students spend approximately half their week learning in English and approximately the other half learning in French.
