Principal’s Message

Welcome to the Salmon Arm West learning community! Salmon Arm West is a small school with a big heart and big dreams. We are proud of our multi-cultural population and embrace our responsibility to educate respectfully and inclusively. As a learning community our goal is to help each and every student achieve their highest potential as learners and as citizens.

As an academic learning community, we believe all of us are born to learn, and we take very seriously our role in helping each student reach their potential. We are proud to have a skilled staff who work tirelessly on behalf of our learning community. Some of the programs and resources we have to support student learning include Early Literacy Intervention, math intervention, an extra-curricular math club and more. We offer a well-rounded education, with opportunities for students in music, art, drama and athletics. Our staff continually participate in professional learning opportunities to refine our practice and stay current with research on best practices in education.

We also believe strongly in the importance of community and citizenship. We strive to foster a culture of caring and respect for ourselves, others and the community. We care deeply for our students and believe in them. At Salmon Arm West, we all matter.

Val Edgell, Principal
