Our Mission


West Bench Elementary is a Kindergarten to grade 5 school.  The West Bench School Community includes students and their families from the West Bench Regional District and the Penticton Indian Band. The West Bench student body is comprised of students representing culturally diverse backgrounds. The unique nature and needs of our students provides many opportunities to teach respect: respect for self, others, learning and the environment.

We believe strongly in creating and maintaining a culture at West Bench that is welcoming, safe, and a healthy learning environment.  Our 26 staff members (teaching, non-enrolling, itinerant and support) are dedicated to making West Bench a high quality school with respect to classroom and school activities.  We provide a wide array of learning and growing opportunities for our students.

West Bench is privileged to have a very supportive Parent Advisory Council and School Planning Council. PAC provides financial support to subsidize a number of extra-curricular activities including curricular and cultural field trips which
enrich daily learning in countless ways.
