Supporting social, emotional and academic enrichment…

We are home to more than 430 Kindergarten to Grade 5 students in the historic Sapperton neighbourhood in New Westminster. At Richard McBride Elementary School, we are proud to offer diverse programs that support the social, emotional and academic enrichment of students. We feature both Montessori and regular programs, and host the StrongStart Early Learning Centre. Our Goal at Richard McBride is to work together to foster a positive school community of socially and emotionally connected learners.
