School Mission

At Sam Livingston School, we strive to meet the individual needs of our students through effective education and the personalization of learning.

School Philosophy

Our school believes that:

  • Personalizing the learning process is of prime importance.
  • We must be student centered.
  • Students need to develop responsibility for self and others.
  • We should all work toward providing a rewarding, meaningful, and positive experience for students, staff, and parents.
  • We must strive toward meeting the individual needs of students and staff.
  • Consistent and positive communications between parents and teachers is vital.
  • We attempt to meet the needs of the whole child.
  • It is important to have students become responsible, independent, self-directed, and happy lifelong learners.
  • Staff, students, and parents must be involved in setting individual and group goals in behaviour, attitude, and achievement.
  • All people should be treated with respect.

Who Was Samuel Livingston?

The school was named after Sam Livingston, the first dairy farmer in Calgary. Sam was born in Ireland in 1828 and followed the multitudes of prospectors who had gold fever in California. Sam was a prospector, a trader, and a farmer. In 1873, Sam settled in the Calgary area where he married Jane Howse and together they had 14 children. His actual farm and homestead is where Heritage Park now stands. Sam's gravestone can be viewed in the cemetery at Heritage Park.

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​.
