School Culture & Environment at the CBE

Our students, staff and school community share the responsibility of building a safe, positive, inclusive, equitable and welcoming learning environment. Along with their own school culture, each school reflects a unified CBE culture of inclusion. This includes our CBE-wide approach to preventing bullying and to protecting our LGBTQ students. Learn more about our system-wide commitment to having an inclusive environment on the CBE website. If you have any questions about how we work together within our school to build positive learning environments for student success, please contact us directly.​

Culture & Environment

Our School

The staff at Colonel Irvine is dedicated to personalizing student learning through meaningful engagement of the curriculum by using collaborative planning practices. Student ownership is important.

Keys for student success include:

  • participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning
  • creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults 
  • being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Our goal is to enhance our learner’s ability to think critically and creatively, using multiple forms of literacy to represent and communicate understanding. We will work to provide students with a curriculum that is engaging, examines big ideas, issues and questions in depth, and that has multiple entry points to personalize learning for all students.
