About Us

December 1, 2021

Rockwood is a multi-age school, based on the alternative philosophy.  Our classes are organized into teams of grades 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6 children. The children will often stay with the same teacher for two years.
Rockwood School offers excellence in education with secure, comfortable, child-centered learning.  Programming is challenging, interactive and promotes self-reliance and independence. Our dynamic staff is committed to creating an educational community with students and their families.
Rockwood School has classes from Nursery to Grade 6 in a close-knit, small school setting.  It has a stable population of approximately 150 students.  Rockwood School values a solid foundation in literacy and numeracy, the integration of the arts, interactive hands–on learning and technology. There is a YM-YWCA operated child care centre within the school that provides before and after school care as well as half day care for nursery and kindergarten students. Rockwood has an active parent council that is very supportive  and runs the school's lunch program.
Rockwood School is committed to education for sustainable development, focusing our efforts on environmental and social responsibility.

Valuing Diversity and Inclusion

Rockwood School is a place for everyone.  Multiculturalism enriches our school; we value learning from each other, about each other. The Rockwood School community also believes in the inclusion of students with special needs and we do our best to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for all. Through inclusion in the multi-age classrooms we strive to teach our students about equality, respect, and dignity for everyone.
