The Rossland Summit School staff have taken time to reflect on our collective values, roles and responsibilities and have captured these reflections in the following Diversity and Inclusion Values Statement:
The Rossland Summit School staff strive to foster a safe, accepting, and inclusive environment that supports race, gender identity, sexual orientation, family dynamic, and religious diversity. Each child has the right to see themselves reflected in the curriculum as outlined by the BC Ministry of Education; as educators and facilitators at RSS, we fully accept this responsibility to incorporate a diverse and inclusive pedagogy. We are committed to providing a community in which every student and staff member feels respected and feels safe to be themselves.
Global CommunityRossland Summit School is connected to our community and therefore the world! Although Rossland is not considered a large community...we have huge connections. At the school we purposely engage with the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals through curriculum and action
Great ClassesOur classes are only limited by our imaginations and dreams. We explore the outdoors, new information and ourselves. Our school and students are so fortunate to have direct access to ‘wild’ open spaces to safely explore and discover each day. We also have access to incredible resources: technology, library, STEM, wood working, theatre, cooking, art … and so much more!
Great TeachersOur faculty and support staff are the ‘Rockstars of Education’! Experts in BC’s curriculum, innovative leaders in assessment practices, kind, caring, welcoming and just plain fun to learn and work with!
Great StudentsWhy is Rossland Summit School so great? Our students …of course! Our students arrive with a sense of curiosity that is nourished, guided and facilitated. They finish each day with a feeling of accomplishment and evidence of their meaningful learning.
