Unisus School presents education model

Private school in Summerland has been operating since September

The Unisus School in Summerland opened its doors on Saturday to show the community its approach to education.

The private school began classes in September, at the former Glenfir School site in Summerland.

Hannah Hartman, junior school principal at the Unisus School, said there are 25 students from preschool to Grade 6.

The school has recently received Group 2 status from the provincial Ministry of Education.

It also offers the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.

Hartman said the school focuses on teaching traits and skills and on providing inquiry-based learning for its students.

“We have a really close community and really committed teachers,” she said.

The school also has small class sizes and provides innovative technologies for the students, Hartman added.

“It’s a really rich learning environment for our students.”

Older grades will be added to the school next year.
