At Roncalli Elementary, we inspire each other to learn every day in a constructive, nurturing and respectful environment. We strive to work cooperatively, encourage responsibility and recognize diversity. We are a proud community!

Roncalli Elementary School serves 410 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. The school's current population is organized in 21 classroom groupings. Roncalli Elementary School is a neighbourhood school serving the Airport Heights community. The boundary for the school covers the western side of Torbay Road from Airport Road to Harbour View Avenue including the Hussey Drive area, Major's Path and streets adjacent to it and Airport Heights Drive and streets that branch from it. The housing development in our surrounding neighborhood is proceeding and thus there is greater opportunity for increased student enrollment at Roncalli. Approximately 95% of the students travel to and from school by the school bus service.
