About Our School

Welcome Bulletin Board

Welcome to Tsuma-as Elementary School! We are committed to meeting the unique needs of students in a supportive, caring environment which promotes student learning, a sense of pride, responsibility, and accomplishment. Tsuma-as Elementary is a K to 7 school in the community of Port Alberni located in the shared Tseshaht and Hupacasath territories in which we live and learn.


This year, we have 16 divisions, and a staff of over 40, consisting of teachers, Education Assistants, and numerous support staff. We also have a Nuu-chah-nulth Education Worker. 


Tsuma-as Elementary School continues to have a strong feeling of community. We find creative way of creating connection between students, staff, home and our local community. We enjoy building positive relationships with each other through all aspects of school. This year we are excited to expand our school community to our new Early Years Center, known as the Mighty Learners. Our school now offers early child care for birth to age 5, and numerous out of school care and pre-school opportunities. 

We also have an active Parent Advisory Committee who works hard at supporting the school in a variety of different ways.


At Tsuma-as, we value a learning environment that is positive, safe, and caring. We are committed to seeing each student rise to their potential and enhance their joy of learning. We use the symbol of a wolf as our school logo and use the acronym WOLF PACK to describe our positive, safe, caring and orderly school learning community.
