Welcome to Raymer Elementary – Home of the Ravens!
We are a Kindergarten to Gr. 6 school located in the Lower Mission area of Kelowna. We are nestled in the beautiful Pandosy Village with a commitment to excellence. Our strong, dedicated staff have worked hard to create an inclusive environment, promoting success for all students. Fostering the attributes of a Central Okanagan Learner (learner, thinker, collaborator, contributor and innovator) continue to be a focus.
In January 2016, Raymer Elementary Intermediate teachers launched Learning in Depth, a program developed through Simon Fraser University which allows students to explore their own learning journey a broad topic such as "Dogs" or "Bridges". The goal is for students to become experts on their topic, taking the time to learn deeply as the work is intended to span a number of years. Once a week for one hour, students in Grade 4 to 6 work in multi age groups learning in ways they choose for themselves, developing portfolios and finding creative methods of sharing their knowledge with others. During the 2016/2017 school year, Grade 3 students will begin the Learning in Depth program. You can find more information about Learning in Depth at the following website: The Learning in Depth Program
On the school property, there is a StrongStart Center, Luna Park Preschool Center, and Clubhouse Daycare Center. Please read the Programs and Services section of this website for more details.
Our school office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Our Principal is Mrs. Terrilynn Nunes and our Admin Secretary is Ms Samantha Skene.
