    Our Schools

    Wagmatcook is a member of the Mi’kmaw Kina’matnewey Education section 35 self-government education agreement. Concluded in 1998 with Canada and Nova Scotia, this self-government agreement acknowledges Mi’kmaq jurisdiction and control over elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education.

    Wagmatcookewey School offers a pre-school, elementary and secondary program in the community from K-3 to Grade 12. Wagmatcook was the first Mi’kmaq community to establish a secondary school program and has successfully celebrated the graduation of many youth since 1989. The school curriculum is bilingual (Mi’kmaq and English) and students are encouraged to acquire language literacy in both languages before they graduate.

    Mi’kmaq Elders are an integral part of the teachings in the school. The community considers Elders as teachers and are considered key cultural links to student learning and traditional knowledge transfer.
