Mission Statement

Elboya School promotes a safe, secure and supportive community, which fosters lifelong learning and integrity, and recognizes the diversity of individuals thus enabling them to reach their full potential through “Learning Excellence” and “Building Community”.

Statement of Purpose

Elboya School has Kindergarten to Grade 9 classes drawn from a variety of communities. It offers a school-wide English Program; Grade 5 to 9 Continuing French Immersion and Grades 7-9 Late French Immersion programs. As an extension of the family and home environment, the school builds upon students' broad backgrounds and experiences to help them connect prior learning to their school learning. High, consistent expectations are held for student effort, student success, and student leadership.

The best possible learning environment is one of cooperation and teamwork where there is caring, trust and respect. This environment encourages risk taking within a dynamic, challenging climate which develops creativity, respects a variety of learning styles, builds a positive self-image, develops a love of learning and recognizes that mistakes are part of the learning process. Lifelong learning requires personal ownership and responsibility for excellence through goal setting and decision-making. Academic, artistic, environmental, musical, physical, technological and thinking skills support such learning.

The education of our children is a shared mission involving parents, students, staff and community. The needs of all are met in an open environment, which recognizes gender issues and encourages optimism, a sense of belonging, and fairness. The relationship between the home and the school is a close partnership developed through shared philosophy, expertise, and an ethical perspective.The guiding principles of “Learning Excellence” and “Building Community” are filters for our work together.

School Motto

Learning & Leading Together.

School Colours, Symbol & Mascot

Elboya's school colors are red, white and black. Our symbol is the falcon and our mascot is Inferno, le Predateur.

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​.
