At MacLachlan we see every student as an individual with their own boundless potential and future. Our exceptional primary years program is where the exciting learning journey begins. MacLachlan’s primary classrooms are brimming with activity. Elements of learning, laughter, collaboration and discovery ignite in bright, colourful, well-equipped classrooms. Our primary students are provided with opportunities to gain the necessary skills which place little feet firmly on the path to academic success.
Beginning with our youngest students, our educational philosophy of international mindedness is cultivated. Our small class sizes provide personalized attention where students develop a sense of belonging and purpose through strong bonds with their teachers and fellow classmates. Students are eager and enthusiastic to learn, and through the culmination of small moments and accomplishments, a solid academic foundation is formed. It is of paramount importance that we provide an atmosphere where students do not just learn, but are eager and engaged. Our students embrace learning, develop a spirit of confidence and find their own voice in a supportive, safe and nurturing environment.
At the centre of our primary curriculum is the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). From its beginnings, MacLachlan has embodied educational excellence. While we adhere to the Ontario Board of Education requirements, we are committed to providing an education that is second to none. We are proud to be the only school in Oakville designated with the prestigious IB PYP designation.
