Today, STS is a co-educational independent school community for Kindergarten-Grade 12 that develops well-balanced students for a life of purpose by inspiring excellence in scholarship, leadership, and character. STS' tradition in educational excellence spans more than 100 years through each of our founding schools: St. Hilda's School for Girls, Strathcona School for Boys, and Tweedsmuir: An Academic School for Girls and can be best summed up by the School's motto: Nil Nisi Optimum - nothing but your best.
The design of the STS facilities furthers the goals of an STS education: to develop students who are well rounded, strong of character and capable of purposeful leadership. Every day, part of your child's learning takes place in our expansive 220 acres of nature. Inside, our diverse learning spaces help our faculty promote both teamwork and self-directed studies.
Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School has been synonymous with the outdoors since its beginnings in 1929. All-day, there are students engrossed in outdoor activity for play, fitness, and coursework.
Students are more intrinsically motivated when they are learning the science curriculum outdoors, according to a 2017 study. At STS, we integrate outdoor learning into curriculum planning. Classroom learning is augmented with frequent field study experiences on campus, as well as in other natural locations. With our wetlands, forests, grasslands and observatory, it's easy to encourage an appreciation for natural sciences in students of all ages. For example, recent Elementary students' projects include:
Exploring the arts outdoors encourages new ways to explore creativity and self-expression. Your student will sketch, paint and write outdoors, or in our Aspen Lodge classroom. They may also perform in our outdoor amphitheatre.
We have more than 10 kilometres of trails, often populated by students cross-country running. STS excels at cross-country running, winning the last nine straight championships, and many more before that. We also use the trails, fields and pond for activities such as Nordic skiing, snowshoeing and canoeing. Whether students choose to compete in a sport or not, our vast, natural campus lends itself to students building a healthy love for outdoor physical activity.
