A Stimulating Environment

The School offers a healthy environment for learning with clearly defined authority, rules and order as a framework for emerging self-discipline. 
From the security of established parameters, it is hoped that students will learn the art of expressing their ideas with decorum, and, with the right balance of confidence and humility so that they emerge with minds of their own, a capacity to distinguish sense from nonsense, a depth of magnanimity capable of accepting other viewpoints, a moral independence and a readiness to detect other people's sensitivities.

The School's role is not to prevent failure, but rather to help students learn from mistakes in a way in which they can benefit from them. After all, the failure is not "in falling down, but in staying down". This approach encourages students to value knowledge for its own sake and to see its pursuit as a lifelong endeavour.
King’s-Edgehill School is located in Mi'kma'ki, the unceded ancestral territory of the Mi’kmaq People.
