In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, all open houses will be done virtually.
Nesbitt School is located in the borough of Rosemont, an area primarily characterized by a working class community with pockets of low-income families. Nesbitt was founded in the 1911 and named after the Nesbitt family in Rosemont. Students, staff and the school community benefits from the beautiful greenery which allows for outdoor and environmental projects to take place.
Nesbitt provides instruction in two of the three basic instructional programs at the elementary level, offered by the English Montreal School Board. Parents can either select the English Core program (available from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 6) or the French Immersion program (available from Kindergarten to Grade 6). Although both programs follow the MEES established curriculum, the amount of time allocated for the English and French languages of instruction differs in both programs.
Among many of the unique characteristics of our school, Nesbitt offers its students hot, nutritional lunches from our school cafeteria. In addition, students can also enjoy a breakfast daily through our partnership with the Breakfast Clubs of Canada. Additional extra-curricular activities are organized by our Home and School Association. These can include chess, cooking, karate, robotics, et cetera. Our Home & School organization also organizes fundraisers to support student life.
