École Massey School has served the southern part of Regina, Saskatchewan since 1960. The surrounding community is attractive with affordable, well-maintained housing in the immediate area of the school. However students come from a broad geographic area from inside the French Immersion École Massey School boundaries and beyond. In the 2011-12 school year Massey became a single track French Immersion school. The enrollment as of September, 2015 is 435 students in Kindergarten to Grade Eight.
School Programs and Services

Formal English Language Arts instruction begins in Grade 3. The goal of the French Immersion program is for students to be functionally bilingual. The following supports are available at the school: Learning Resource, Speech and Language, Teacher Librarian, School Counselor, Occupational Therapist and Psychologist support.
School Governance Structure
École Massey School has a principal and vice-principal. The staff works as a collaborative team to set priorities for student learning and achievement through the Learning Improvement Plan. The Learning Improvement Plan is aligned with the Regina Public Schools Continuous Improvement Plan which can be accessed through the Regina Board of Education website www.rbe.sk.ca. This work is supported in the school by the School Community Council (SCC) and a student advisory council (Conseil d'Activités de Massey). The SCC consists of seven parents, the principal, the vice-principal, a teacher, three appointed members from the community and a student representative from the Conseil d'Activités de Massey (CAM Team). The SCC meets on a monthly basis and is an extremely active organization involved in many aspects of the school and its programs. Communication regarding the École Massey School learning improvement plan and school-based activities is provided through a regular newsletter and the School website: firstname.lastname@example.org
