List of schools in Nova Scotia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from List of Nova Scotia schools)

Nearly all primary and secondary schools in the province of Nova Scotia are public schools maintained by the provincial government's Department of Education. While providing guidelines, the government divides administration of public education over seven regional school districts and one province wide school district serving the province's Acadians.

Post-secondary schools consist of the provincial government operated community college system, Nova Scotia Community College and independently managed universities which receive some public funding. (For a list of post-secondary institutions see List of colleges and universities in Nova Scotia.)

There are seven English-language school districts in Nova Scotia:

There is a single province-wide French school district:

Description of Nova Scotia public grade schools[edit]

A high school in Nova Scotia has typically meant a 'senior high school', referring to a school responsible for the education of students grades 10 to (and including) 12 or grades 9 to 12. A junior high school is typically responsible for grades 7 to 9 or grades 6 to 8, where the latter type is more often called a middle school. Some rural high schools combine junior and senior high schools, providing education for grades 7 to 12.

An elementary school is responsible for the education of students from grade kindergarten (usually referred to in Nova Scotia as "grade primary") or grade 1 to grade 5 or 6. A number of Nova Scotian schools combine elementary or the later grades of elementary with junior high or the earlier grades of junior high to form what is referred to as a consolidated school. (Note: The term 'consolidated' is also confusingly used in the naming of a few elementary schools too in the province). Finally, a few schools have all grades from kindergarten to 12.

In summary prominent patterns by which Nova Scotian grade school students attend school are as follows: 1)elementary school, grades pr to 6; junior high school, grades 7 to 9; high school, 10 to 12 2)elementary school, grades pr to 5; middle school, grades 6 to 8; high school, 9 to 12 3)elementary school, grades pr to 6; junior and senior high school 7 to 12 4)consolidated school, grades pr to 9; high school, 10 to 12 5)elementary school, grades pr to 4; consolidated school, grades 5 to 9; high school, grades 10 to 12.
