Chute Lake Elementary is located in Kettle Valley in the Upper Mission. It opened in September 2009 and a two classroom modular addition, complete with washroom facilities, was added in September, 2011.
The school was built to high, environmentally sustainable standards achieving an unofficial LEED* (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design-International Rating System) silver rating. Landscaping includes indigenous, drought-resistant vegetation and native, low-mow grass mixes which will reduce irrigation. CLE school grounds connect onto Chute Lake Park which provides a vast expanse of green space to be utilized by staff and students for special field events.
Our mission statement embraces our philosophy that every student who graduates from CLE leave with the skills of problem solving, inquiry, and critical and creative thinking;
We want students to be motivated and excited to learn as well as to act responsibly and
compassionately by giving back to others in their local and global communities.
Our mission is to develop inquiring, respectful and industrious young people who help create a better world by being critical, creative and compassionate thinkers.
