Our School

Ancaster Meadow is a multi-cultural school located in the Meadowlands in Ancaster.  Built in 2005, the school’s mission is built on C.A.R.E. – Community, Achievement, Responsibility and Equity.  Our mission statement is founded on five values that we consider most important when decisions are made at the school – collaboration, dedication, integrity, respect and empathy.  The school is organized on a Balanced Day. The school is operating at over-capacity due to a high number of single family dwellings being built in the area.
