Castlefrank Elementary School is a school in Kanata, ON. It is located at 55 McCurdy Dr. The School's principal is Ron Henry. It is named after the nearby Castlefrank Road.

History[edit]

Castlefrank Elementary School was built in 1988, and housed senior Kindergarten to grade 4 Early French Immersion students. Another section was built in 1990, when the JK to grade 6 English program was added. In 1988, there were 179 students registered at the school. It was officially opened on May 9, 1991. Its name lent itself easily to theme work which revolved around the school's symbol of a castle. This symbol is incorporated into the tile in the foyer of the school and the school's colours of red, yellow, and blue are illustrated in a mural of a large castle painted on the wall in the hallway. The motto of the school is "Be the best you can be!" The first grade 6 students were promoted to grade 7 in June 1991. Castlefrank became an English Kindergarten to grade 8 school on September 7th, 2004. During the 2007-2008 school year, there were approximately 450 students at Castlefrank.[1]

Building[edit]

The School has 15 homeroom classrooms for grades 1-8, 2 Kindergarten classrooms, a computer laboratory, a gymnasium, a library, a resource room, three special education rooms, a science room, a music room, a literacy room, and a community kitchen. The school is divided into 2 main wings, one for the higher grades, and one for the lower grades.
