What’s Our Mission?

Students First Nova Scotia was launched in March 2011 to affirm that students should always be the first priority in Nova Scotia public education. We believe that restoring this fundamental principle is vital to revitalizing, improving, and reforming our public school system.

Students First NS strives to be a truly independent voice committed to putting students first in education. Join us by signing our Statement of Principles and commit yourself to urging educational authorities to embrace our reform agenda based upon five core principles:-

  • put students first;
  • elevate teaching;
  • empower parents;
  • raise standards; and
  • spend wisely.

We call upon Nova Scotians to join the drive for better,
more engaging, and truly accountable public schools.
