About Us

Welcome to École William McDonald Middle School!

École William McDonald Middle School is Yellowknife’s only true middle school!  Students have the opportunity to develop their literacy and social skills within all aspects of the academic program, the elective courses and co-curricular activities.

Our excellent school facilities provide the backdrop for student achievement in the academic subjects, the arts, physical education and the co-curricular activities. Our school staff, parent volunteers, and community representatives are all vital human resources through which our students receive support in their daily learning experiences at École William McDonald Middle School.

Not since birth has the adolescent brain gone through greater growth as it does in these three years. Our students are truly receptive and ready to "take charge" and we provide many opportunities for students to grow and challenge themselves with programs like:

Exploratories – Four options, the students will get a chance to try them all! Industrial Arts in our modern IA shop, Home Ec in our full service kitchen lab, Art is taken in our fully stocked art room and Outdoor Ed takes advantage of the wooded location of the school.

Me to We – Is a club that heightens the awareness of social and economic differences in the world and empowers the students to effect change within the community and globally.

Camp Akaitcho – Challenges students and fosters independence while teaching students the ability to live and survive in the winter landscape. Students snowmobile out for a weeklong stay in an igloo or a quincee putting all their new skills to the test!

Hidden Lake Canoe Trip – Canoeing out to Hidden Lake in June…This trip is a favorite of students!
