Our School

Richmond School – Your Community School Has Heart!

Our teaching practice begins with thoughtful and intentional plans for learning, allowing deep understandings and genuine inquiry. Our Digital Learning Environment has been enhanced to support student learning. Literacy and technology are interwoven and connected to enrich student engagement. Personalized Learning, using technology as desired is strived for, increasing the level of intellectual engagement. Learners can be so focused, so intensely engaged, that time itself seems to disappear! Teachers endeavour for student work to be relevant, meaningful and authentic to excite and engage learners.

Students have a new Outdoor Classroom located south of the school. "The Heart Circle," is a beautiful combination of hard and soft landscaping. The amphitheater design, with its limestone walk way being in the shape of a heart, clearly carries the motto that "Richmond School has Heart!" On bright sunny days classes have enjoyed using this learning space as a classroom and are learning to care for and appreciate nature.

To discover when your child is eligible for Kindergarten, try our Kindergarten Calculator. Richmond Child Care Association is located at the school and can offer before and after school care. Early registration assists our staffing for next school year.

Richmond School will be hosting a number of "School Previews," which will include a welcome tour for perspective parents. Please contact the school to find out dates and to register.

Welcome to Richmond School!

​​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.​​

Acknowledging the Land

We would like to acknowledg​​e the traditional territories and oral practices of the Blackfoot Nations, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani and the Kainai. We also acknowledge the Tsuut’ina and Stoney Nakoda First Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), and all people who make their homes in the Treaty 7 region of Southern Alberta.​

​​​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​.
