ABOUT OUR SCHOOL

Promontory Heights Elementary Community School opened in November 2000. It is located on Promontory Hill which is below Mount Thom and on the hillside that leads to the Ryder Lake area

It began  as a school of under 300, and over a short period of time, grew to over 600 students and currently enrolls  approximately 540 students. In order to accommodate this many students in a school that was built to enroll 350 students, we utilize six portables. 

As you can imagine, Promontory Height Elementary is a  busy place. Even though we have 540 students we work hard to maintain a community feel to the school.  Biweekly Recognition Assemblies bring us together to celebrate successes. Buddy classes, Peer Helpers, Activity Leaders, Helping Hands, library/Tech helpers, Recycling   and Student Lunch Monitors help to keep our primary and intermediate students familiar and in contact with each other. As a community school we are supported in serving the varied needs of our community through afterschool programs hosted by the Promontory Heights Community School Association (PHECSA)

We strive to maintain a positive, cooperative and respectful learning and working environment. Through the efforts of our staff we hope the programs and activities that we provide serve to support your child(ren) in their social, emotional and academic  development.  Our school provides many opportunities for our students and families:

programs that focus on and support literacy and numeracy skills

  • a variety of class, grade group and school wide special events and activities
  • a number of clubs and teams that participate in District events
  • a focus on social responsibility through our emphasis on STARRS
  • a number of programs offered through PHECSA including on site after school daycare (Panther Pen), on site pre school, and a host of afterschool, evening, and summer programs.
  • an active, energetic and committed Parent Advisory Council

We think that Promontory Heights Elementary is a wonderful school and hope that you will find this a great place to be.
