Port Williams Elementary School

In June 1991 our school won the "Work and Well Being" Title from the provincial division of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). In the category of Small Employer, Port Williams became the first school in the history of the provincial competition to win this award.

In the September 1996 issue of Today's Parent magazine, Port Williams Elementary received national recognition when it was profiled as one of the top five great schools in Canada.

Evangeline Middle School

After graduating from PWES, students go the Middle School located in nearby New Minas.

"Evangeline Middle School is a Grade 6, 7, 8 school with an enrollment of approximately 340 students. Our academic programs are enhanced by daily physical activity, instrumental music, literacy support, computer instruction and extracurriculars such as drama, art and athletics. Reading Advancement, Positive Participation, Exploratory activities, Adventure Education, School-Wide trips, and the Grade 8 Entrepreneurship Interdisciplinary Unit are unique educational opportunities provided by the EMS staff in an inclusive learning environment."

Horton High School

Students complete their secondary education (grades 9-12) at this P3 school in Greenwich (just across the dyke).

"Horton High School sits on a 42-acre hillside site overlooking the Minas Basin and the farms and orchards of Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley. The 1000-student facility features leading-edge technology and has been called the "finest secondary school in the province and country." It was built in 1998, using public-private sector partnering and the involvement of the community to create a state-of-the-art facility.

Teachers, staff, students and the community helped develop visions for the school's design, and technological literacy and the integration of the curriculum with technology became a priority. Learning and instruction are enhanced by the excellence of the students, the teachers and all support staff and resources available. Horton High School provides academic advantages to its students with modern instructional areas, art studios, technology and science laboratories, numerous computer studios and a computer-to-student ratio of 1:1.9.

Home of the Horton Griffins, the campus features a double-sized gymnasium, three athletic fields, an outdoor recreational area and a modern fitness centre. The performing arts are served with a 500-seat, fully equipped theatre, and music, dance and drama facilities, as well as an outdoor amphitheatre. Students have a modern mall-style cafeteria with sound, digital and visual capabilities, an art gallery, student organization offices, and numerous support facilities for counseling, career research, mediation, tutoring etc. There is even a daycare facility on the premises.

Always proud of its long tradition of producing outstanding students— academically, artistically, athletically—Horton continues to excel with some of the finest facilities anywhere."
