Nelson McIntyre Collegiate is a Grade 9 - 12 High School in the Louis Riel School Division with a mandate to reimagine high school for the 21st century. Nelson McIntyre Collegiate has developed a new Project Based Learning (PBL) model of schooling that started with its Grade 9 students in 2016-2017, and is adding grade 10 in 2017-2018. Grade 11s will be added in 2018-2019 and finally, Grade 12s in 2019-2020. This model affords students an opportunity to incorporate authentic deeper learning opportunities into their studies. It focuses on 21st century skills that we call the 6Cs (Fullan, 2014). These are: Communication, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Citizenship, and Character. We have added a 7th C to the 6Cs with one of our own—Career Development—delivered to our students through Weeks without Walls.
Because of our unique programming, we are accept applications from students from across the Louis Riel School Division.
With an enrollment of approximately 280 students, Nelson McIntyre Collegiate is a small school with big opportunities. The school also offers a number of other programs including a project-based interdisciplinary program for Grade 11 students called Propel, and Co-op Education—a program designed for students with cognitive disabilities. We have an active Junior Achievement Program, a competitive athletics program, a highly regarded band program, and many other extracurricular opportunities.
