  • 1923-1989

Part of Mission School District #75, Cedar Valley Elementary School was opened in 1923 in one of Ferndale Elementary’s previous buildings located on the corner of Cedar St. and Dewdney Trunk Rd. Cedar Valley Elementary School was closed in 1989, and the students and teachers moved to their new location at Albert McMahon. Cedar Valley School then became an alternative school. The school offered an Ecological Studies Program which focused around the environment and developed a partnership with the community, businesses, and government agencies. Students in this alternative program worked on the Silverdale Creek Estuary wetlands, and built a one kilometre trail and large concrete salmon sculpture there. This program also caught its members up on academics they missed out on. Cedar Valley School was closed following the conclusion of the 2006/2007 school year.
