Learning that Enriches the Life of Each Student

Indigenous Choice Program

Nusdeh Yoh (House of the Future)

As Indigenous peoples of North America, the Indigenous community has a unique relationship with Canada. Policy acknowledges their role as the First Peoples, recognizes the historic contributions of Indigenous communities and their diverse cultures, and acknowledges the vital role that the Indigenous communities play today and into the future. The establishment of an Indigenous Choice School represents a unique responsibility and opportunity to promote harmonious relationships and the co-existence of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike.

All Indigenous students are entitled to not only the quality holistic education that is available to all SD 57 students, but also one that validates, recognizes, and facilitates the revitalization of Indigenous cultures, histories, values, and languages.

Nusdeh Yoh, , “house of the future”, has been chosen as our Indigenous school name. The name selection process involved consultation with elders, parents, staff, and students. All stakeholders desired a name that represented the hope inherent in this school to effect meaningful change in the lives of our children and families.

In the context of Nusdeh Yoh, student success is a holistic measure. We know that the emotional health and well being of our students is fundamental to their ability to access instruction and fully participate in their learning. Our focus on Restorative Practice is more than a philosophy of student discipline. It is an acknowledgement of the need for respectful relationships between all members of our school community and forms the foundation for a positive, welcoming school environment for all learners and participants.

Nusdeh Yoh The house of the Future, welcomes all learners!
