Education for All, Education for Life

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is the largest school board in Ottawa and offers students and parents a world of choice for education, growth, and achievement. Our 147 schools offer a wide range of programs to promote learning excellence and meet the individual needs of students, parents, and the community at large.

All of our schools are teaching communities where our principals, vice-principals, teachers, and support staff nurture and challenge students to achieve their best in academics, the arts, athletics, and technology.

Everyone Is Welcome Here

We are dedicated to providing a welcoming environment to parents, students, and staff in all our schools. Cultural diversity is an important part of our community and is contributing to the growth and vibrancy of Ottawa.

We value, embrace, and encourage diversity in our schools believing that it builds a stronger community and contributes to learning and growth. We are proud to teach, live, and share the things that we have in common while celebrating what makes us unique.

Your Child Is Safe with Us

A child feels free to learn and achieve in an environment where they feel cared for and protected. We take our responsibility to create safe schools for all our students seriously. We create safe and caring schools and dedicate ourselves to working with all our communities to ensure that students can learn in a safe, secure, and welcoming school.

We Celebrate Success

Wonderful stories of student achievement, staff commitment, and community involvement are happening in our schools every day. From the school supplies collected for students in Third World countries to blood donor clinics to snowsuits and Thanksgiving dinners for those less fortunate, our schools are vibrant communities of giving, caring, and sharing.
