Dates of existence



Part of Mission School District #75, Dewdney Elementary School’s current building was constructed in 1924, and enrolled students from Kindergarten to Grade twelve until 1948 when it officially became an elementary school. The school was originally known as Burton’s Prairie School, constructed in April 1882, with only one small classroom. In 1911 the school was rebuilt and renamed Dewdney School.
The school employs seven student-centered teachers who involve themselves in promoting high academic achievement and global citizenship. The approximately 75 students engage in CORE, Community Outdoor Recreation & Environment Education, which motivates the students to engage in their natural surroundings, local agricultural community, and broader ecological world through adventure and discovery-based curriculum.
