Our School

Midnapore School originally served the Hamlet of Midnapore which consisted of only a church, post office, and woolen mill. Children in the township rode their horses or walked for many miles to attend classes in the small Anglican church (still standing as an Alberta Historic Site) from 1887 until 1891. A new building was constructed in 1890 and classes were held there from 1891 until 1917. A new school was built on the west side of the CPR railway tracks and classes were taught there from 1917 to 1942. In 1942 the Midnapore Community Hall was purchased and converted into a two-room schoolhouse. Classes were taught there from 1942 until 1969. The current Midnapore School site was opened in 1978.

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​.
