beyond academics

Children with learning disabilities often excel in other avenues, including the creative arts and hands-on activities. Unfortunately, the public school system is not adequately equipped to recognize and encourage these talents. At KGMS, we develop the whole child. Part of this process includes a range of extracurricular activities that allow our students to experience success, often in ways they never knew they were capable of.

artistically inclined

Upon your first visit to KGMS, you will be greeted by the student art work which lines our hallways. We operate a residency program in partnership with local artists and also with Emily Carr University(ECU). Professional artists work with our students in different media such as painting, drawing and sculpture, often with a particular theme or artist as inspiration. Senior students from ECU come and work with our students to co-create specific projects; our students contribute by giving their unique perspectives on the topics.

The children hone their skills as they work towards a classroom exhibition, which parents are invited to enjoy.

physical activity

Physical activity also plays a major role in whole-child development. In addition to regularly-scheduled PE classes, student teams play in sports tournaments throughout the year, including our annual student-teacher hockey game which draws a cheering crowd of friends and family.

We have a 3 day outdoor school where the children are able to experience community building.
