About Plainview Colony School

Plainview Colony School is a Kindergarten – Grade 12 Hutterian school located approximately 15 kms west of Elkhorn, Manitoba. For the 2012-2013 school year we have 28 students, 3 classrooms and 7 staff members.

Our students speak German as their first language and attend German school for one hour prior to English school, and also for one hour after English school. They also attend German school on Saturday mornings.

In the 2011-2012 school year, a Pre-school program was started to help children make the transition to English school less traumatic. Our first class was made up of six German speaking 4 yr olds. The program ran on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. We continue to operate the Pre-school program.
