Valcartier Elementary School
It is our mission to help all students learn and take an interest in their education.
We believe in strong community-parent partnerships, engaged learners, character education and language fluency.
VES is committed to nurture confident, knowledgeable, responsible and productive students.
Valcartier Elementary School was built in 1947. Sixty-six students attended during the first school year in 1947-48. At that time, Mrs. Winnifred McCartney and her husband, Mr. Elmer McCartney, acted respectively as teacher and caretaker/bus driver. The couple also lived in the school building for a period of 18 months before moving into their home on 5th avenue.
Nowadays, Valcartier Elementary is entirely devoted to educational instruction. Valcartier Elementary remains a very small, multi-level school with a current enrolment of 73 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6.
