Description & Services

Description of service(s) At Bessborough School we are responsible, respectful & ready to learn. Bessborough is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 School serving the West End of Moncton and Salisbury Road areas. We offer Early Immersion for Grade 3-8 students, as well as English Prime programming for Grades K-8 with a Grade 5 Intensive French component for approximately 420 students. 
At Bessborough School we do our best each day to live our school mission statement. I feel very fortunate to work each day with a great group of educators and a supportive community to help each of our students learn, grow and explore opportunities so that they can realize their maximum potential and grow to be responsible, respectful and well-educated members of our community.

​To challenge and inspire students to realize their maximum potential.  
An environment to develop and enrich all children and ensure their needs are the foundation upon which all decisions are made.  
​Everyone can learn and is responsible for their decisions and actions. Parents, school and community will work as a team and parental involvement is directly related to the child's success. It is everyone's right to have a safe, caring and secure environment where learning is ongoing. Each individual has self-worth, dignity and the right to be respected by all.
