Our School

Ranchlands School serves the northwest communities of Ranchlands, Sherwood and Nolan Hill. 

We have one system special education classroom for a Paced Learning Program serving Area 1 students (see Program Focus & Approach).  

For more specific information about our school see our school profile.

Our Vision

Everyone in the learning community is valued for their generosity of spirit and strength. Each child is seen for his/her gifts knowing that our responsibility is to hold their potential in sacred trust never failing to highlight the best that exists in each learner. 

Through passion, empowerment, self-motivation and self-awareness, students extend their learning beyond their doors. 

School Mission

We actively engage students to pursue their passions. We are committed to fostering belonging and supportive relationships within our community and to make certain that voices are heard and respected. 

School Motto 

We All Belong

​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. Our school, along with all CBE schools, made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 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​.
