​​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Program, Focus & Approach

Focus and Approach

Strengthening student learning is the heart of our work at our school. Pineridge focuses on creating a learning community that invites children to think deeply about their work and to consider ways in which they can make a positive difference in our world. We have a Reggio inspired learning environment combined with technology that integrates with our inquiry and project based learning focus. As a recipient of a recent Education Matters Grant, we are currently transforming our library into a Learning Commons. We have begun implementing a Makerspace within the Learning Commons that promotes interdisciplinary learning in the facets of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. It also inspires collaboration, innovation, and creativity in our students, making learning authentic.

In ensuring that our students represent their learning in a variety of ways, we continue to make fine arts a focus in our instruction. Pineridge has a full-time music teacher who delivers a music program that provides our students learning through performance and creative activities. We are fortunate to have a resident dance instructor who works with the entire school population. To support our student’s literacy development we have had the honor of hosting one of Canada’s most prolific and popular author/illustrator - Ruth Ohi.
