Hidden Valley School is a Dual Track French Immersion school

We have both a Regular English Program and a Early French Immersion. We offer these programs for the Kindergarten to Grade 3 students. The entry points for French Immersion are Kindergarten and Grade 1 only. We only accept students who reside in the neighborhoods of Hidden Valley and Hanson Ranch for our Regular English Program.  Starting in the 2019/2020 school year, we will accept students in our Early French Immersion Program from the neighborhoods of Hidden Valley, Hanson Ranch, MacEwan, Kincora, Sandstone, The Hamptons and Sherwood.

Our teachers work intentionally and collaboratively in Professional Learning Teams at each grade level. We believe that a positive, healthy and supportive learning/teaching environment is essential to all learners. Our strength lies in our whole community approach to learning and our focus is the ongoing development of approaches to teaching literacy and language skills across the curriculum. We focus in on personalized learning for all students and instructional approaches that involve differentiation and universal design for learning.

As a staff, we recognize that leading and learning in the 21st Century is challenging as well as rewarding. It requires significant collaborative and innovative work each day as a Professional Learning Community. The staff at Hidden Valley School stand committed to this task of collaboration to serve the individual needs of each student. We echo the CBE's motto “Learning as Unique as Every Student”.

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​.
