Ernest Morrow School is committed to the development of a learning and teaching community which strives to create an atmosphere of safety, responsibility and accountability. Respect, understanding and commitment to quality teaching and learning will foster this environment where students will think critically, take risks, strive for personal bests and challenge themselves to be productive members of society. Creative, cooperative and supportive working relationships are essential if our students are to become responsible citizens and lifelong learners. 

The role of each teacher, working within a collaborative and cohesive staff, is to build a trusting and caring school climate that honours individuality and encourages effort to help students recognize, build on and achieve their full potential. As a team of parents, teachers and students, we will work together to create a community based on balance and moderation, personal health, and knowledge so that students are empowered to respect diversity and achieve personal success, mastery of curricula and technological competency.

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​.
