Brick Labs Academy focuses on developing your child's values, skills and knowledge to help them succeed and prosper. Our performance objectives reach beyond standard curriculums to provide students with real opportunities to learn the skills needed for the future. Equally important, we ensure your child is happy and learning joyfully.
"An elementary education is the once in a lifetime opportunity where children should love to learn. They need teachers that are caring, lessons that challenge and excite, and an environment that is joyful. You will find them all at Brick Labs Academy."
We spoke with a few of our current and past parents. See what they had to say about Brick Labs Academy stem classes and their children's experiences.
We focus on STEM. The subjects and skills needed for 21st century success. It's more than an acronym: it is about collaborating, communicating, critical thinking and creativity. In addition, we work at making learning purposeful and give our students the "why" behind the lesson.

Students are capable of so much when given the opportunity and the necessary mentoring. Robotics and coding give students the chance to be innovative, creative and apply the logic skills developed through the year.
Throughout the year our students participate in a number of Expos to showcase their learning to their friends and family. This year's Expo themes included: Canada, Our City, Visual Arts, Engineering, Financial Literacy, Robotics and Performing Arts.
Every 4 to 6 weeks parents join us to engage in their child's learning journey. Expos are held after school where students present a major project involving the application of a variety of subjects. Its a true demonstration of their mastery in specific areas. Expo Themes include: Engineering, Robotics, Visual Arts, Canada, The City, Financial Literacy, Science and Performing Arts to name a few.
Throughout the year, we bring in subject matter experts to engage with students on their EXPO projects. Scheduled for 2023/24 we have engineers, financial advisors, architects, artists & musicians, writers and more. Its a great way for students to get real feedback, learn about careers and develop a network of supporters.
Our students regularly engage in the discussion of values: what they are and the role they play in navigating personal decisions. By encouraging the discussion of values, students learn to respect themselves and the choices of others.
