About Michelangelo Elementary

Michelangelo School endeavours to successfully integrate students into present and future day life by providing the tools required to play a constructive role in society while developing positive values. The focus is not simply on the acquisition of knowledge, but on fostering in young people the desire to create a better and more peaceful world through respect and understanding of the many cultures of this world. The school provides students with the essentials of lifelong learning by creating environments that arouse intellectual curiosity. When students leave Michelangelo School, we expect them to have become inquirers, principled, balanced, caring, communicators, open-minded, risk-takers, and reflective.
