Mary Nicholson School 70

Welcome to CFI School 70, a hub of innovative learning and global exploration. Our school is led by Principal Troy Nolan-Watkins, fostering a community of respectful lifelong learners who utilize inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

At CFI School 70, we believe in the power of an inquiry-based approach, offering the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the Middle Years Programme (MYP). With a focus on International Mindedness and the Learner Profiles, our students are encouraged to develop personal learning goals and explore teacher and student-posed questions around big ideas.

We provide a well-rounded education through extracurricular activities, sports, clubs, and strong parent and community partnerships. Our commitment to excellence is manifested through a safe, joyful learning community that emphasizes intercultural understanding and respect. Welcome to a world of innovation and inquiry at CFI School 70!
