School Vision

The vision of Eric Harvie School is to champion every student as an independent, capable, creative, innovative thinker and learner. Within our vision statement resides an enormous capacity to meet student learning needs in highly innovative, creative ways. We believe this is best achieved when balanced with a firm foundation of literacy and numeracy skills. Once our staff gather and we become familiar with our families and our students, we will continue to develop this vision together.

Our greatest strength will be our students, their families and each other as we work together within our dynamic, innovative new school landscape. We are gradually hiring our teaching and support staff and will share our staffing information with families via school email. 


Our School Name

Eric Harvie (b. 1892 – d. 1975) was a Calgary lawyer, businessman and philanthropist, who gave back to our community through several foundations including the Harvie Foundation and the Glenbow Foundation. Harvie founded the Glenbow Museum to share his passion for artifacts from all over the world, and in particular those from Western Canada. He also supported the creation of Heritage Park, the Calgary Zoo, the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts, and the Luxton Museum. 

In carrying on with his legacy, his family’s ranch land was designated a provincial park, Glenbow Ranch Provincial Park, by the Government of Alberta in 2008. In 1914, Harvie enlisted in WWI and served as a Lieutenant and a Captain. Following WWII, he was appointed Honorary Colonel with the Calgary Highlanders and in 1967 he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada.

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​.
