Our Story

The UGDSB is a student-centric learning organization, and we exist to inspire a lifelong love of learning while developing globally literate citizens. From kindergarten through Grade 12, to Adult Learning Programs, our schools provide robust foundational education by fostering engaging and supportive learning environments. We commit to ensuring each student is encouraged to chart their own educational path and prepared to overcome any obstacle they may encounter along the way. At UGDSB, we promise to put students at the centre of everything we do.

UGDSB schools are more than just places to learn. Over 4,000 educators, staff, and supporters collaborate and contribute to foster inclusive, developmental environments where students can form lifelong friendships, discover their passions, and grow into responsible members of their community. UGDSB is on a journey to ensure that all learners feel that they belong and matter and can be their true selves at school. We want students to feel capable and empowered to make positive change in their lives and the lives of others.

Aided by the contributions of caring volunteers and partners, we strive to create real-world opportunities for students to make a positive impact in their communities. Working closely with parents, guardians, and students themselves is a crucial piece of holding the school board accountable to keeping our student promise. 

We invite you to join us on this journey and experience for yourself what makes the UGDSB’s student-centric approach unique and impactful.

Our Logo

Featuring a large U in the symbol, our logo is a visual demonstration of our student promise: we put you, the student, at the centre of everything we do. The unique mosaic approach and diversity of colours reflects all learners at the UGDSB – a representation of how they can be their true selves at school.


Our Tagline

Like our promise, our tagline puts students at the centre. It is, essentially, shorthand: how we encapsulate our commitment to ensuring each student is encouraged to chart their own educational path.
