​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.

The teaching team at Colonel Walker School includes six energetic and creative individuals who, along with the Principal practice a highly collaborative approach to improving learning for students. In addition to designing inquiries and learning tasks through which students gain knowledge and develop capacities and skills associated with Alberta Education Programs of Studies, the team also works closely with the Parent Association and extended community to provide program enhancements such as:

  • Residencies
