Bowness High School has a long tradition of “Pride and Excellence” that is reflected in the many activities that occur daily. We expect everyone at Bowness to follow the school credo of “Pride and Excellence”. To follow this credo, students should commit to the following:

  1. Demonstrating Pride & Excellence daily by accepting new challenges, constantly striving to improve and displaying positive attitudes.
  2. Seeking a well-rounded educational experience through a balance of academics, athletics, fine arts and other activities.
  3. Positively impacting school climate by demonstrating citizenship and character.
  4. Doing what is right. Determine the best answers to any moral dilemmas by asking for advice, talking to friends, family and your teachers.

Why Bowness is a School Filled with Pride and Excellence

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​.
