School Location

W.O. Mitchell School is located in the northwest community of Silver Springs, serving the community of Silver Springs, and Grade 5, and 6 students from the neighbouring community of Scenic Acres. The designated junior high school for students residing in Silver Springs is Montgomery and for students residing in Scenic Acres it is Arbour Lake School. The designated senior high school for both communities is Bowness High School, however once the new NW High School is constructed, Scenic Acres students will be designated there.

About the School

The school was opened in 1980. The school has 8 classrooms, 2 portables, 6 relocatables, a library, music room, art room, high school-size gymnasium, and computer lab.

In May 2005 the school celebrated its 25th anniversary with a huge family barbeque for students and their families, as well as an open house for alumni. The time capsule was opened and its contents displayed. Students who had put work samples into the capsule in 1980 were able to claim that work and take it with them. A new time capsule with artifacts representing 2005 will be sealed until 2030.

W. O. Mitchell School was named Arbour Day School 2006. The students, staff and parents were involved in various activities throughout the year to learn about and celebrate respect for our environment. An Arbour Day Celebration took place on May 11, 2006 and a legacy created by this project is a lovely garden and sitting area in front of the school.
