Message from the Head of School
Welcome to the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) website. For prospective parents and students, our site provides you with a wealth of information about our school. For current STS families, you will stay apprised of events and activities and have access to important educational resources. For alumni, you will be able to connect with others while keeping informed about alumni events, volunteering opportunities and day-to-day happenings at our school.
STS traces its roots back more than 100 years to its founding schools which you can learn more about in our history section. Over time, we have developed a set of rich traditions and shared values that strengthen our sense of community and provide an enriched learning environment for all our students in Grades 1 through 12. Our school motto, Nil Nisi Optimum, compels each of us to do nothing but our best in all of our endeavours. Our mission is to develop well-balanced students for a life of purpose by inspiring excellence in scholarship, leadership and character. We strive to achieve this mission and live up our motto through our rigorous academic and diverse co-curricular programs.
STS is both an IB World School and a Round Square School. The philosophy, values and ideals that we share with these organizations such as internationalism, service and intercultural understanding dovetail beautifully. Together they shape a unique learning environment and philosophy, allowing us to instill in our students the knowledge, values and qualities of character that will enable them to live purposeful lives and be the leaders of tomorrow.
At STS, we recognize the uniqueness of each of our students and we strive to meet each of them wherever they are, inspiring a journey that will lead them beyond anything they could have imagined.
Dr. William Jones
Head of School
