History of Education in Mistissini

Voyageur Memorial School is located in the middle of the village of Mistissini and is comprised of three buildings (a high school, an elementary school and the Pre-Kindergarten building). There are also two sabtuans next to the high school for Cree culture classes.

Built in 1983, the original building of École Voyageur Memorial now houses the elementary school where Cree, English and French are offered in Pre-K and Kindergarten. When entering Grade 1, children are put in English or French sector, while maintaining Cree Language and Culture classes until Grade 6. 

The Elementary School has a gymnasium, a library, a computer room, a science lab, a resource room, two teachers’ room and a large well-equipped Special Education facility as well as a Safe Haven Room.
