About Our School

Dwight Ross Elementary School is located in the village of Greenwood, Nova Scotia in the beautiful Annapolis Valley. Our school first opened in 1961 and is named for Air Commodore A. Dwight Ross.

Over the years, Dwight Ross School has had many grade level configurations, but is currently a Primary (Kindergarten) to grade 5 school with a student population of around 160 students.We are a part of the Annapolis Valley Regional Centre for Education (formerly Annapolis Vallery Regional School Board).

Our catchment area consists of the follwing areas in Greenwood: the PMQ’s, Stoneridge Place, Riverridge subdivision, Planesview subdivision and Pineview subdivision. You can view the online catchment map here (map size can be changed with the zoom to the left of the map).

The school year runs from the first part of September until the end of June (please check the calendar, linked above, for the exact dates, as they vary slightly from year to year).

You can see our daily schedule HERE.

We have a strong PTA with many parent volunteers helping out. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact our school office for more information.

Please check out the website which offers more information via our calendar, newsletters and staff information.

Please note: We do not offer French Immersion at DRES; the regional French Immersion program is offered at Kingston & District School, in the neighbouring village of Kingston. Please contact them for more information about the French Immersion program.
