Sir Southlands Elementary School
Southlands Elementary School is a K-7 school located at the western city limits of Vancouver, British Columbia in the Dunbar-Southlands neighbourhood.
The first school in the area was the Kerrisdale Annex. Southlands Elementary School nearby opened in the fall of 1952, to accommodate children from the Annex after a petition succeeded in convincing the school board to open the new school so that they could attend closer to home. The Kerrisdale Annex was renamed Southlands Annex and continued to accommodate children in the lower primary grades.
Southlands Elementary School is surrounded on three sides by Pacific Spirit Regional Park. The proximity to the forest with bald eagle nests and small streams has encouraged a rich environmental and ecology curricula. It is notable for having specialized First Nations programs due to its proximity to the Musqueam Native Band (which is located almost directly to the southwest). There are two daycare programs on the school grounds, Jericho Kids Club for first grade and older, and Creative Minds, for kindergarten and younger.
