Our School


The Calgary Board of Education and Belfast School are committed to personalized learning. We achieved this through an approach to learning that is strength based and builds on what students can do. We incorporate authentic fine arts and technology experiences empower students and  leverage engagement. Exploration, creation and engagement are fundamental to our mission.


Children discover themselves and others as learners in a dynamic arts and technology centered learning community. By providing students with opportunities to experience their world, they will realize their individual gifts and personal capacities.


Expressing and building understanding through creative endeavors allows students to generate personal connections socially, physically, and emotionally.


Through meaningful and authentic learning experiences, students will initiate and engage in practices that foster ownership of the future and responsible citizenship.

We Believe

  • learning is a life-long process, must be engaging and meaningfully connected to real life.
  • goal setting is essential to personalized learning.
  • democracy, respect and acceptance are foundational to Belfast School’s culture
  • self-awareness and personal advocacy empower students to provide their individual voice.
  • recognizing the family as the child’s primary source of learning; student learning is a shared endeavor with the school and family working in partnership.
  • the infusion of technology and fine arts is essential.
  • children’s understanding is deepened through multiple ways of knowing and representing learning.
  • a collaborative approach to learning fosters a community of justified risk takers, mentors and leaders.

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​.
