Student numbers at Marymound School are purposely kept low, so that students benefit from more individual attention.
Children with very high needs can achieve success in school with additional supports. This is where Marymound School excels.
Using a creative, dynamic approach, Marymound School delivers the provincial education curriculum from elementary grades to grade 11. Students often transition back into community school after a few years at Marymound School.
Who attends Marymound School?
Marymound School serves two populations of students. Some are young people who live in Marymound group homes or living units, while others, our Day Treatment students, come to us from all over Winnipeg, and live at home with their parents, foster parents or other group homes.
How does a student get into Marymound School?
Young people not receiving services from Marymound (living in a group home or living unit), must be referred to Marymound School by their school division. Contact the school in your area first and they will guide you through the process.
