Our students, while learning more about their Indigenous attributes, will be prepared for academics and success.

Cruikshank School staff and High School leadership students William Fisher and Jason Henry worked along with parents Rhonda Pitka and Rebecca Fisher to create the mission and vision statement.


Here in Tsee Duu' (Beaver), Cruikshank School is deeply rooted in the culture and language of our diverse Indigenous heritage. With the constant support of our families, Elders, and community leaders we have high expectations for our students in academics and cultural skills to succeed in any environment.
