We believe that Homesteader is a safe, supportive school which fosters social, emotional and academic growth. We understand the importance of providing our students with an environment of trust, co-operation and respect. We recognize that each child is unique and special with their own potential for growth and success. At Homesteader we celebrate our cultural diversity and promote a sense of community in all classrooms. Students are engaged in their learning through the use of technology, hands-on activities and co-operative learning activities. Homesteader staff members are committed to continuous professional improvement and model life-long learning. We value our relationships with our school community and recognize the importance of open communication among parents, students and staff.

Homesteader School is located in the south Clareview area. The community contains a mixture of single family homes and high density housing. We are an optimal enrolment school, offering programming for our community students and we welcome students from other communities into our Opportunity and Early Education programs. We are experiencing an increase in our Aboriginal population and in the number of ELL students. Several of our students come from single parent families and we qualify for full-day kindergarten due to the socio-economic needs of our community.
