Our School

We would like to acknowledge that our schools are on unceded Algonquin Territory, and thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us on their 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.

Our Students

Total enrollment (January 2020): 591

17% of our students are presently enrolled in English programs and 83% are enrolled in French Immersion programs. Once our students complete grade 8 they attend South Carleton High School in Richmond. Some go on to the Arts program at Canterbury High School.

Our Staff

Our talented staff represents a wide range of educational backgrounds, interests, and expertise. The teachers work cooperatively to provide a consistent delivery model for instruction. We are able to deliver a great deal of inhouse training because of the talents of several master educators. Teachers are assisted by a committed team of  Educational Assistants, office staff, a Library technician and a Chief Custodian. Staff provides organized activities including intramural sports, a band, and the Students Leadership Team.
