Principal Frank Law Bert Edwards Science & Technology School (BEST) teachers use the inquiry method to enhance the learning of students through BC's newly redesigned curriculum. Students are immersed in large, meaningful and broad teaching questions, or inquiries. BEST does operate with an integrated curriculum, fulfilling all of the prescribed Learning Outcomes in the B.C. Curriculum for grades K through 6. We are based in a low-income area and therefore support many very needy families and children who may not have access to books at home. We also have the Bright Red Book Shelf at our school where students can select free books to take home on a daily basis.

Our school learning plan goals are that students will improve foundational skills in literacy and numeracy and that students will improve their ability to resolve problems peacefully and to create and maintain healthy relationships with their peers and adults in school settings. Having exciting, new, and engaging resources for teachers and students to utilize will support us while achieving our goals.

We have a fabulous PAC and parent group at BEST supporting students, families, and and staff at BEST.

Please select the BEST school in our district. We love literacy and our goal is that every child becomes a proficient reader and writer with a passion for literacy. Thank-you for considering BEST.
