city limits and the Saanich Peninsula. Students attending Royal Oak
come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Students come to Royal Oak
from Prospect Lake Elementary, Cordova Bay Elementary, and Lochside

Royal Oak is known for its dedicated staff and innovative educational
practices. The focus is on student learning and encouraging students
to take an active role in their own learning process. Students
learning is supported though the use of technology, a fully updated
learning commons, and the use of inquiry-based learning in
classrooms. At Royal Oak, we also recognize the need for middle years
learners to feel a sense of belonging and safety at school. Staff
directly address social-emotional learning and support students by
teaching problem-solving and conflict resolution strategies. Students
are also given the opportunity to participate in the diverse array of
extra-curricular activities offered at Royal Oak. Royal Oak is a
great place to learn and grow.
All students at Royal Oak Middle School have a right and responsibility to ensure that they, as well as others,
practice the 3 Rs:
- RESPECTFUL to ourselves, others, and this place.
- RESPONSIBLE citizens and learners.
- RESOURCEFUL citizens and learners.
