S. Geiger Public School is located in the town of Massey, where the Spanish and Sables Rivers meet. Our students come from the town of Massey and also from the rural areas of the Township of Sables-Spanish River. We are the most westerly school in the Rainbow District School Board.
The history of the area is readily apparent for all to see as they visit our own Massey Area Museum. Our school itself is steeped in history, and is proudly named after Mr. Sidney Geiger, a School Inspector back in the days when these gentlemen made their rounds of the one-room school houses and then the larger, combined schools in their jurisdiction, ensuring that children were getting a proper education. We carry not only his name but also his dedication to quality education where children come first.
At S. Geiger, we proudly promote athletics, academics, and the arts. We have a large, well-stocked library, individual Chromebooks for all of our junior and intermediate students, and iPads for all of our primary students. Staff and students are also in the process of developing our 21 Century Imagination Station where students will be able to integrate technology into the design process. We have a dedicated teaching staff and an incredibly supportive parent group. Many of our parents give freely of their time to volunteer in classrooms and/or assist in the varied activities that abound at S. Geiger. The whole school joins together to prepare and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast – turkey and all the trimmings!
We are delighted to share our building with some of the youngest residents of the community as they attend the One Tot Stop Day Care. It has been a part of our school for the last 16 years and we continue to enjoy their presence as we share the facility and collaborate whenever the opportunity presents itself.
Our mission at S. Geiger is to create a positive learner centered community that fosters academic excellence, creativity, character development and life-long learning for all. Through work and play, all students will meet their potential and become happy, healthy, self-sufficient members of society. We embrace all learning opportunities, taking pride in the steps of the journey.
