Our Learning Story
Davidson Road is a K-6 elementary school located in the heart of Lake Country. Home to close to 500 students, we are a school that has a strong and equal focus on the academics, the arts, and sport. A rich and diverse student body populates the Davidson Road community and many of our students possess a wide range interests and abilities.
Davidson Road has a dedicated and experienced staff who offer many opportunities for our students' growth. Along with the many learning experiences that occur inside the classroom, the staff also allow opportunities for multiple extra-curricular activities as a result of their dedication volunteerism, and expertise.
The school also has a supportive community of parents. Our PAC members, who support the school in a variety of ways, dedicate a great deal of time to provide our students and our school with opportunities that we would otherwise not be afforded. Whether it be through the purchasing of iPads, literacy resources, or field trips, Davidson Road is a better place because of the strong involvement of our parents.
At the school-level for the past several years, the goals of the school have revolved around Davidson Road students being able to provide evidence of being learners, thinkers, innovators, collaborators, and contributors. Students from Kindergarten to grade 6 are beginning to see themselves as these types of learners and staff have done an excellent job in creating learning experiences to facilitate this growth.
When we scanned the school population and attempted to determine where we could best serve the needs of the students, it was recognized that we were doing a great job in addressing a multitude of needs of many of our students. However, we felt that we could do an even better job of addressing more of the needs of more of our students, and thus, what resulted was the idea of implementing a model of inclusion.
We felt that with the right model and the right approach, we would be able to provide a clear focus for targeting the needs of all of our students. As a result, this idea led to the initiative of inclusive education at Davidson Road.
It all starts with the right tone:
