Let's help every child reach their full potential while instilling
within them a love of learning


Sackville Schools 2020 is a community-based group working to transform K-12 education in Sackville, New Brunswick. We want to be proactive in the face of change, working together to help decide what happens to and in our schools. An innovative, inspired, community-based public school system will benefit our children and community. We need to support teachers in this effort.

We find when we talk about 21st century skills, people often reduce them to skills for the workplace and skills involving technology. And we’re really talking about skills for creativity, for civic engagement, for social life—the full range of experiences that young people will be involved in in the future.
