St. Francis de Sales Elementary is a Christ-centered school that seeks to serve the whole child through the development of faith, family, and community. Our vision is to instill the knowledge of Christ’s love and mercy in our community. Our students ignite their passion and potential to love and serve others as Jesus would, in our safe and inspiring learning environment. As concerned Catholic educators our aim is to reinforce Catholicism in children and help them to develop spiritually, academically, artistically, morally, emotionally, socially, and physically toward becoming caring people aware of their responsibility to God, to themselves, and to their fellow man. Our school is in the Highgate region of South Burnaby, close to many parks and lakes, and just a 30-minute commute to Vancouver's downtown core, beaches, and other attractions.
