About North Bay

Mission Statement

We are a community of responsible, life-long  learners, respectful of each other, the world, and ourselves.

Guiding Beliefs

  • Every child is important
  • Learning to understand ourselves, get along with others, and appreciate diversity is an important part of education.
  • Parents, teachers, and children play a cooperative role in student learning.
  • Our school provides an inviting atmosphere for learning and growing. Individuals who are nurtured through positive learning experiences develop self-esteem and confidence.
  • All children are encouraged to work toward their highest potential. Learning occurs most easily when minds are open and when methods and schedules are flexible.
  • Children can learn to solve most of their own problems and are accountable for the consequences of their own behavior and decisions.
  • North Bay students and staff are dedicated to life-long physical, social, and academic well being.
