Escuela Eugene Coste is a Spanish bilingual alternative program. Our students access the Alberta Program of Studies for all regular academic subject areas in addition to Spanish language arts. The bilingual program means that students are provided with 50% instruction in Spanish. Generally, Spanish instruction is provided in mathematics, physical education and through Spanish language arts. To make the language learning more authentic, teachers strive to embed Spanish language learning in other academic areas such as science and social studies and through a variety of  research-based instructional strategies. 

We use an over-arching inquiry question to guide our work in providing students with rich, authentic learning opportunities. This year’s focus has examined “What is our story?  ¿Cuál es nuestra historia?”. We have accessed a professional storyteller through a residency program to model the process to staff and support students in building their capacity as oral storytellers. We will continue to explore opportunities for artist residencies to enrich our programming.
