School Catchment Areas
Hanover School Division maintains strict catchment areas in order to ensure a balanced enrollment across the division and the viability of all schools.
School age children living with a parent or legal guardian have the right to attend the designated school in the catchment area where their parent(s) or guardian(s) reside.
The Steinbach Regional Secondary School is considered the designated high school for Grade 9 - 12 students from New Bothwell, Blumenort, Kleefeld and Mitchell. Grunthal, Niverville and Landmark students attend high school in their home communities.
Schools of Choice
The Schools of Choice initiative facilitates parental/student choice, within limits, in selecting the public school best suited to the student’s learning requirements.
Only those students who qualify under “right to attend school” legislation may exercise choice.
Application forms are available online:
