Our School

Mount Royal School is a diverse learning community comprised of many different cultures, races and religions. Students were born in approximately 43 countries and speak more than 40 different languages. Our student population includes English Language Learners (ELL) and an ACCESS and TASC (special education) class. 

Our Vision

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.

Partnership 

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.

Student Achievement

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.

Character Education

Mount Royal believes that we can help students achieve their potential through our commitment to character and character education. We believe in developing leadership in our students so they can become their own advocates in the learning process and actively contributing members of the communities they belong to.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​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 Improvement 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​.
