Our School

The Traditional Learning Centre Program uses teacher-directed instruction and character education to foster reflective thinking, continuous learning and responsible citizenship. It is a celebration of cultural diversity and commonly held values. The virtues-oriented school environment prepares students to meet the moral, technological and global challenges of the 21st century. Balmoral School serves approximately 600 TLC students from Grades 5 to 9. 

There is an opportunity for students to personalize learning by selecting regular and enriched/compacted courses in LA and Math. The school also offers a strong fine arts program, French as a second language, a diverse options program, annual musical, and participation in inter-school athletics. Students have access to three technology labs, including two wireless mobile labs. Character education forms the foundation for expectations with an emphasis on virtues, positive values, and respect for self, others and the environment. 

Balmoral School strives to maintain these high standards through continuous professional improvement. The TLC program uses teacher directed instruction and character education to foster reflective thinking through continuous learning and responsible citizenship. It is a celebration of diversity and commonly held values. Although the Traditional Learning Program is academically rigorous, it is not reserved for elite students. The program is designed to support all students who are motivated to work with teachers and parents to thoroughly develop their ability to achieve excellence in a structured, virtues oriented environment.

Motto 

To think, to value, to know.

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​.
