About the CBE
The CBE is the largest school district in Western Canada. Our mission is to ensure each student, in keeping with his or her individual abilities and gifts, completes high school with a foundation of learning necessary to thrive in life, work and continued learning. You can look on the CBE website for more information.
Celebrating the Colours of Our Earth speaks to our respectful membership as citizens of this planet, our connection to each other, and our recognition of the earth’s rich invitation to learn. We believe these words imaginatively reflect the nature of our community and the purpose of our learning.
Our school’s mission clarifies these words with one additional line: Honouring Creativity and Diversity. This line informs and inspires how we carry ourselves forward and generate possibilities in our work with the children and with each other.

Student leaders at Monterey Park describe the importance of their role in the following way.
"To get in to leadership you have to be a good example to your fellow classmates. We help other people by raising awareness of local and global issues as well as doing fundraisers and hosting other school events. We help plan events such as Sports Day and the Terry Fox Run."
