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 and extra-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 – Small groups of students spend approximately eight weeks in each exploratory course: Industrial Arts, Fine Arts, Technology, and Outdoor Education. 

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 quinzee 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!
