Our Mission

The special mission of all Sion schools is to instill in their students a deep appreciation of their own faith and culture, as well as a heightened awareness of, respect for, and sensitivity to the beliefs and practices of others. The schools promote the dignity and rights of each person across racial, religious, ethnic, and socio-economic differences. These priorities permeate every aspect of the integral education of their students.

At ÉCOLE BILINGUE NOTRE DAME DE SION, Montreal, this mission and this educational vision find expression especially in the commitment to provide an excellent bilingual education that prepares grade six students to excel in the English and French high schools of their choice. Our strong bilingual program also supports students to develop efficient work habits.
The atmosphere of inclusivity helps develop students who are open to the diverse reality of our society and world.

Values

Complementing the specific focus, ÉCOLE BILINGUE NOTRE-DAME DE SION offers students a values-based education that cultivates their sense of responsibility to their community

The values practiced and developed by the EBNDS teachers, staff, and students are the following:
• Openness to and appreciation of diversity
• Respect
• Cooperation
• Responsibility
• Autonomy
• Perseverance

The school staff practices these values in order to become good role models for our students. Our attitudes are used as reference.
