Mount Royal School has embraced a vision of Excellence for All which is reflected in our motto Reaching for Excellence. We believe that all students have the right to a quality education, that high academic standards must be set and that students can and will succeed in ways that reflect their aptitudes and interests.
Mount Royal strives to form partnerships within the school as well as outside the school walls to build our school community. Students are taught by outstanding teaching teams who can personalize learning for students’ talents and needs. We believe that partnerships with parents will help students achieve their potential. Volunteers are key in supporting school programs that benefit students and we would like to encourage parents and families to get involved in one or some of the many great opportunities we offer to our students.
At Mount Royal, we focus on student achievement and preparing our students to be 21st century learners. We ensure that all of our resources are used effectively towards this end. This includes purchasing a variety of diverse learning tools like assistive technology that assists our students in their learning. Our School Council supports students’ activities and equipment purchases through casino funds.
Mount Royal believes that we can help students achieve their potential through our commitment to character and character education. We have chosen seven core virtues which are discussed in classes and recognized at term assemblies. These core virtues are respect, responsibility, honesty, compassion, self-discipline, perseverance, and giving. We believe in developing leadership in our students so they can become their own advocates in the learning process.
