Leonardo da Vinci School was built in 1981 under the former C.E.C.M. In the early 1990s the school program changed from Core English to Bilingual. In 1998, the English sector of the C.E.C.M. merged with three other English school boards to form the English Montreal School Board. Today, Leonardo da Vinci Academy. is part of the E.M.S.B. still offering the bilingual program. As of July 6, 2009, our school was granted the status of an academy.
Leonardo da Vinci Academy’s mission promotes the fundamental values of democracy. It will facilitate our students’ integration into society and prepare them to become responsible citizens. We recognize that every student is different and has different learning styles and needs. Therefore, we strive to provide over the next few years support, encouragement and positive reinforcement in order to help them achieve success. The ultimate goal at LDVA is to create a positive and safe environment where students are motivated and happy, and are prepared to deal with an ever-changing world.
Parental participation through committees and volunteer tasks are welcomed and en-couraged. The Home and School Association is actively involved in organizing school- wide activities such as fundraisers, holiday celebrations, book fairs and library services. In addition, Home and School supports our teachers by helping to fund project-based initiatives.
