Our Learning Story

​Welcome to École H. S. Grenda Middle School (HMS)!  HMS is a new school in the Lake Country community located on the unceded Traditional Territory of the Syilx Okanagan People.  Nestled amongst orchards, parks, and lakes, the school has been built to embrace the natural beauty that surrounds it with its large windows and wide open spaces. 

​On September 7th, 2021, we were thrilled to welcome our first group of students to the school.  In the opening year we welcomed new grade 6 and 7 students from the surrounding feeder schools.  In September of 2022 we will expand to a grade 6, 7, and 8 school.  This will be our final grade configuration.  As a dual track French Immersion and English school, we pride ourselves as being a vibrant and unique school - one that you will have to come and visit!  

We encourage you to watch the video below to learn more about our wonderful school!


Below are some photos of the building as it progressed along through the building process.

In preparation for our first information session, we asked families to share what their ideal school would look like, sound like, and how it would make them feel.  Below are a few of the responses we received.
