Katimavik Elementary School is an Ottawa-Carleton District School Board elementary public school in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Katimavik is located in suburban Kanata in the Katimavik-Hazeldean neighbourhood. The school opened in 1981 and there have been two expansions, the second in 1984 to accommodate the intermediate students. Katimavik accommodates students from grade 4 to grade 8. Katimavik offers early French immersion programs to 560 students, as well as an English program to over 100 other students. There is also a GLP class (General learning Program) which hosts 16 students. Katimavik feeds into Earl of March Secondary School.

A few of the clubs hosted at Katimavik include Changing Lives in Kenya, a non-profit organization working with Free The Children to help support families in Kenya (www.theclikteam.weebly.com), The Eco Club (which won the bronze Eco-School award), and the Spirit Committee, in charge of planning and organizing school events such as dances and movie nights.

Currently, the school's regular schedule starts at 8:45 am and ends at 3:15 pm. However, a proposal for the 2015/2016 academic year put forward by the OSTA (Ottawa Student Transportation Authority) may change the school starting time to 9:15am.[1]
