Ste-Adèle Elementary School

About Us

Ste-Adèle Elementary School was founded in 1950 by Mr. Louis Cochand, Mr. Frank Scofield and Mr. A.E. Thompson. It is located 70 kilometers north of Montreal at a walking distance to beaches, ski hills, hiking trails and cross-country ski trails. We have 86 students for the 2023-2024 school year.  We are proud of our small class sizes and the individualized education for each child. Our classrooms are spacious and comfortable creating an appropriate learning environment. Our school has an ideal playground with natural trees and greenery.
