Welcome to Open Roads Public School
Open Roads Public School is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school located on the south side of Dryden.
As an Open Roads grade 7 and 8 student, your child will be able to experience our specially designed Academies Program that enhances our students’ educational experiences. Our Academies Program offers amazing learning opportunities in the arts, physical education and sports, outdoor education, STEM and we even have a strong instrumental music program where your child can choose between string, brass, woodwind or percussion instruments. This is a great hands-on learning opportunity for our kids.
Our school has two Kindergarten classes in specially designed spaces for our youngest learners. These classrooms are staffed with Kindergarten teachers and Early Childhood Educators who are experts in early childhood development and are dedicated to the success and wellbeing of each and every one of their students.
We have a very active Parent Council, called Parents 4 Kids. This group hosts a variety of activities that help make Open Roads School a fantastic place for our children. Our Christmas Feast, Family Halloween Dance, and end of year Family Day picnic are just a few of the events that they support.
We are proud of our school, our unique programming, and most of all, our students and the accomplishments we see them making every single day. Our doors are always open to our families and community members, and we invite you to stop by and see what Open Roads School has to offer!
Our Awesome Programs!
This year we started our innovative and fun Academies Program for our 7 and 8 students. The program runs 4 afternoon a week and focuses on sports, outdoor education, art, STEM education – we also have an instrumental music program. These awesome opportunities widens the scope of our educational learning experiences for our students.
Indigenous Youth Council
This year we have started something very special at our school. This innovative and new initiative within Open Roads is a direct result of the Truth and Reconciliations Calls to Action. It is our mission at Open Roads to bring Indigenous history and culture to life while developing leaders within our school community.
At Open Roads we have an amazing partnership with our local Northwestern Health Unit. With their support, we provide a nutritious breakfast and delicious snack bins for each classroom. The menu always varies but we have all kinds of fruits, vegetables, cheese and crackers and unique and healthy things for students to try.
