Our School

Our School Name

The name is appropriate in that there are occasions in the spring and late fall when, early in the morning, one can see deer from Fish Creek Park making their way through the community. Deer Run School is the only school in the Deer Run community. 

School Motto

Lifelong Learning in a Global Community

Mission Statement

Our mission is to facilitate individual student learning and development in a safe and caring school environment in order for students to become lifelong learners as well as responsible, contributing citizens.


Our vision is for staff, parents and students to work together and share responsibility in striving to achieve the CBE End Statements.

Our Beliefs

We believe Deer Run School is a community of learners where students and adults engage as active learners. This is a place where students, staff and parents encourage each other’s learning.

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​.

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.​​​
