About Dalkeith Elementary

Our History:

Dalkeith Elementary has proudly been serving Ville d’Anjou and surrounding areas in Montreal since 1961. Over twenty years ago, Dalkeith implemented the integration of special needs students into the regular classroom setting; a program and practice that we continue to this day.  Throughout the years, faces and teaching practices may have changed but our fundamental philosophy of nurturing potential in all students has remained unchanged.  The 2011 / 2012 academic year marked our 50th Anniversary. During those fifty years, Dalkeith has touched the lives of thousands of students and their families, helping them for their future. Their stories are what we are most proud of in our history.
