Our School

Scenic Acres School is named after the community it resides in and opened Aug. 30, 2001. It served the needs of Kindergarten to Grade 3 students until August of 2009 when it added Grade 4 students to its complement. The school consists of 8 classrooms, a library, and a gymnasium which was added in 2004. 

All students in the school receive music programming provided by a specialist, and daily physical education. Our School also offers a Noon Supervision Services program for students in Grades 1-4. School Council and the Scenic Acres School Enhancement Society (SASES) supported the purchase of a new playground in 2003, and more recently SmartBoards and computers for each classroom, as well as two computer carts on wheels.

Our recognizes the individual needs of all children, fosters a caring and creative environment and strives to allow each child to reach their full social, emotional, intellectual and physical potential.

School Vision

  • Learning should be joyous, active and meaningful.
  • Learning is life-long.
  • Individuals are unique and learn at different rates and in a variety of ways.
  • Diverse learning opportunities enhance, reinforce and extend individual knowledge.
  • Students need to assume multiple roles as a: leader, collaborator, and flexible thinker.
  • Learning is a shared experience and responsibility among students, staff, parents and community.
  • Students need to be risk-takers.
  • Communication between home and school is essential.
  • Children assume ownership of their learning when given voice, choice and support.
  • Students need to learn to balance their individual rights with their responsibilities as citizens in their school, community, city, and world.
  • Students need to have access to technology to find information, communicate with others, solve problems and make decisions in safe and ethical way.

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 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​.
