Christine Meikle School is a unique setting for junior high and high school age students with moderate to severe cognitive disabilities and/or complex learning, medical, emotional, sensory or behavioural needs.  Our programming helps students develop communication, independence and vocational skills to the best of their ability.

In January 2017, our school moved to a new building that was specially designed to meet the needs of our unique student population.  Movement and physical exercise are paramount for our students to assist them with self-regulation, physical control of their bodies and social interaction. This building is equipped with a warm salt-water therapy pool, an indoor track as well as a completely accessible playground area to support these important student endeavours. The building also included a large open Learning Commons, several sensory rooms and a completely accessible student kitchen. Students responded favourably to this move and are utilizing all areas of the building to enhance their learning.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

School Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
