Mission

Our mission at Ethel M. Johnson School is to facilitate continuous student learning and development. We recognize and value individual differences in students and strive to provide for their diverse learning needs. In cooperation with the home, we promote children's intellectual, social, emotional, creative, and physical development.

We Believe:

  • That all children can learn and succeed, although not in the same way or at the same time
  • In early identification and provision for learning differences
  • That all experiences should contribute to student's self-esteem
  • That the better we understand quality learning, the greater are the opportunities for individual student growth
  • That an in-depth knowledge of curriculum will benefit the learner
  • That an environment of collegiality and collaboration enhances teaching and learning
  • That mutual respect fosters positive student-teacher relationships

Vision

To build a collaborative, collegial learning community founded on our beliefs that students learn best:

  • In an atmosphere that is positive, caring, and supportive.
  • When they have opportunities for success and for development of a positive self-concept.
  • Through a variety of experiences that address a variety of learning styles.
  • When they are actively engaged in purposeful, meaningful learning.
  • When they are encouraged to take responsibility and ownership for their learning.
  • When their teachers are knowledgeable and committed and participate in shared decision making and leadership responsibilities.

School Motto

Together we learn, grow and inspire the best in ourselves and others.

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​.
