Our School

Cedar Grove Elementary School is within the traditional territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation on the Sunshine Coast, BC.  Thanks to the hard work of parents and the contributions of our community, we are very proud to have an accessible children's playground on our campus as well as a full scale medicine wheel.  There are over two hundred and forty students in attendance within regular K-7 elementary classes and special district programs.   The students and staff are supported by very active and involved parents.  We all enjoy the grove of many beautiful and culturally significant red cedar trees for which the school is named.
