The Arts-Centred Learning program is a middle School (Grades 5-9) focusing on learning in and through the arts. Students take courses in art, drama, dance, media arts and music to learn the foundation of these disciplines.

Our distinguishing feature is the focus in core curriculum on learning and teaching as a means of understanding the world. Students are encouraged to find ways of learning that help them understand concepts, analyze experiences and develop attitudes that value the rigor that the arts require.

The prescribed Alberta Curriculum serves as the starting point for our work and we believe students have opportunities to achieve to their highest potential.

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​.
