Our school is part of the CBE, which is the largest school district in Western Canada. We offer a depth and breadth of programs and supports to meet the unique learning needs and interests of an increasingly diverse population. We focus on personalizing the learning experience so that each student is engaged, inspired and learning to their full potential. Our values are: students come first; learning is our central purpose; and public education serves the common good.

You can look on the CBE website for more information on teaching and learning.​​

Teaching & Learning

Belief Statements

Quality learning occurs:

  • when students find the work meaningful and engaging in a rich learning environment built on knowledge, virtues and critical thinking
  • through positive interpersonal relationships that include students, teachers, parents and the community working together and responding to change 
  • when teachers set high expectations for academic excellence and character development and model these outcomes in their planning, communication, evaluation and feedback 
  • when staff is committed to continuous learning within a community of learners through study groups, shared leadership and collaboration 
  • when diversity is celebrated and common values are articulated in a virtues- oriented environment that encourages responsible citizenship and character
