About Ken Taylor and our School Culture

Our school is named after a great Canadian hero, Ambassador Ken Taylor. He understood the importance of understanding and recognizing other cultures both in the countries he worked in, and  here in Canada. Our school is a wonderful representation the many cultures and languages we find across Canada and this is a key factor in making our school and our country great! Did you know that we have 31 languages and 25 countries represented at our school?

​School Culture & Environment at the CBE

Our students, staff and school community share the responsibility of building a safe, positive, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning environment. Along with their own school culture, each school reflects a unified CBE culture of inclusion. This includes our CBE-wide approach to preventing bullying and to protecting our LGBTQ students. Learn more about our system-wide commitment to having an inclusive environment on the CBE website. If you have any questions about how we work together within our school to build positive learning environments for student success, please contact us directly.​

Our "classrooms" look different, but we continue to support student learning. Check out this video for more info. #wearecbe https://t.co/z6XBq4mA3Q
