The Windsor Adventist Elementary School

The Windsor Adventist Elementary School has a current enrollment of 33 children. The school is part of the church complex at 5350 Haig Avenue, and has two classrooms, a large gymnasium, an office, and a supply room. The school also shares various rooms with the church, including the conference room, an extra classroom, and a kitchen.

Although relatively small by public school standards, it has many advantages, including:

  • An excellent pupil to teacher ratio of approximately 11 to 1
  • A Bible based, spiritual component not available in the public school system.
  • A dedicated team of Christian teachers.
  • Excellent scores on standardized provincial tests.
  • A large variety of activities for students outlined in the school calendar.
  • Low tuition rates (As a private school, we are not supported with government funding.)
  • We are part of a larger educational system which is North American wide, and therefore have access to resources not available to many other private schools.
Should you like to enquire about enrolling your children, our phone number is 519-945-1611.

Ambra Greaves

Teacher

Hello I'm Ambra Greaves! I studied at Burman University and graduated in 2017. My family is from the sunshine island of Barbados. I love traveling, art, and learning random trivia. One of my favourite Bible verses is Hebrews 10:39 which states "We aren't the sort of people who timidly draw back and end up being destroyed. We are the sort of people who have faith so that our whole beings are preserved". I love this verse because it reminds me that as an educator, we have a monumental task at hand. Even though it can seem insurmountable, we don't back down. We face that challenge for the sake of helping our students become the best they can be in every avenue of their lives, both spiritually and academically.

School History

The Windsor School was founded in 1919, under the leadership of David Geauvreau, and was then called the Windsor SDA School. The operation was sporadic until the 1940's after WWII, when the school opened again and has remained open continuously till this day. It has been relocated 4 times. In the early 1990's, the current facility was opened.

Curriculum

The curriculum at WAES mirrors that of the Province of Ontario in many respects, yet remains distinctively Christian. We begin our day with worship, pray before lunch and at the close of day. Two weeks of Spiritual Emphasis, one in the fall and the second in the spring, give an added boost to the spiritual nature of our school. A Bible class instructs students in the Word of God, and also brings them closer to their Creator.
