Access to educational facilities is important to any new residents moving into a community. Newcomers like to be in easy reach of facilities including elementary, secondary and post-secondary institutions. Many individuals may be attracted to a community solely upon the number of high-calibre educational amenities.

Children-Elementary and Secondary Schools

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador offers free public education to all Canadian citizens and permanent residents less than 18 years of age. Parents of children are responsible for school supplies and school uniforms.

Registration for elementary and secondary schools usually takes place several months prior to the school year. In order to register, an individual must contact the particular school their child wishes to attend and find out all the registration details. Certain schools may charge a administration fee for the registration of a child.

The town of Grand Falls-Windsor offers residents easy access to both elementary and secondary schools. Most children start their schooling at the age of 5 in the province where they begin at Kindergarten level. In the kindergarten level, children attend 5 days of either morning of afternoon classes. As a child gets older, they will continue to attend elementary school grade 1 (age 6) to Grade 6 (age 12). Junior High or Intermediate school is from Grade 7-Grade 9 (ages 13-15). The last school system to complete is High School and it includes Grade 10-12 (ages 16-18). All elementary and secondary schools in Grand Falls-Windsor are administrated by the Nova Central School District.

There are a number of different schooling options available in Grand Falls-Windsor. A child may enter a public, English, French Immersion, Francophone or Private Institution. Those parents that may want to home school can also have that option in this province.
