We acknowledge that our learning is taking place on unceded and unsurrendered Algonquin Territory. We thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us and recognize their enduring presence on this land.

Our School

A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School opened in 1991 in Stittsville. The school is named after a former Carleton Board Superintendent of Schools whose contribution to the development of special education programs was recognized throughout the province.

The notions of community and family are very highly valued at our school. Teachers and parents work together in all aspects of school life, with the best interests of children as our primary focus. We are dedicated to making our school a place where students achieve in an atmosphere that is comfortable, focuses on the development of their character and offers lots of opportunity for developing all aspects of each student as a person. Our school is a vibrant place that offers much to every student, each and every day.
