Ottawa School Reports

Once you have children, it becomes very important to do research on more than just your dream home.  It now becomes an essential piece of house hunting process to research schools that your children will attend.  As a licensed Ontario teacher and a real estate broker, I have a unique skill set to assist in finding the perfect family home in a great school district.

Searching for a school, might start with something like the IB program (International Baccalaureate) - please click here for schools in Ottawa with IB programs.

The most common Ottawa Schools that are requested are Katimavik Elementary School, Lisgar Collegiate Institute and Cantebury High School

Katimavik Elementary School

School hours: 8:45 am – 3:15 pm

Katimavik ES is located in the Katimavik area of Kanata, a suburb of Ottawa. The school is a French Immersion Centre offering:
■Early French Immersion Program from Grade 1 through to grade 8.
■Katimavik Elementary School was built by the Carleton Board of Education in 1981; an addition was added to accommodate the Intermediate students in 1984.
■This year Katimavik has a Middle French Immersion program from grades 6 through 8.

The school is known as a French Immersion Centre, today serving approximately 550 students from grade 1 to grade 8. When our students leave after grade eight they are able to read, write and speak in both French and English. They receive a thorough grounding for bilingualism, thanks to the combined engagement of families, staff and students.

Lisgar Collegiate Institute
Lisgar is conveniently located in downtown Ottawa and boasts a building with history and prestige. Its music program is among the best in Canada, and its high academic standards breed excellence in its students. We focus on the three "A's" - Academics, Athletics and the Arts, with a strong emphasis on our community. We are extremely proud of our accomplishments and welcome any opportunity to work in partnership with others to develop all Lisgar students in the areas of excellence, leadership and citizenship."

Cantebury High School
Located in the southeast sector of Ottawa, Canterbury is a hub of creative activity for over 1300 students. It is a school with a 40–year tradition of excellence made up of students from our local community and students who have auditioned for the specialized Arts Canterbury program. Students in the Arts Canterbury program enroll in one of the following art disciplines: dance, drama, literary, music, or visual. There is rich diversity in the school population that is respected and encouraged. As a result, the students are motivated, creative, energetic and committed to their studies, their school, and their community. The extra-curricular athletic program at Canterbury lends balance to both academics and arts. Our goals are to nurture excellence in our students by challenging them with the best of the academic, artistic, and athletic worlds, and to help students become well-rounded individuals who care about and understand our greater community.
