​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

Our Program

All students enrolled in the English Regular Program access the Alberta Education six-year Spanish Language and Culture program of studies. Families interested in having their junior high aged-children begin to receive basic level Spanish classes are welcome to inquire about attending Senator Patrick Burns as an out-of-area student on the grounds of access to specialized programming.

Physical, Emotional and Mental Health

A priority is placed on the development of healthy lifestyles and practices. On Friday mornings, you will participate in Bronco Block together with your homeroom class and teacher. This is a time in which curricular outcomes for the Alberta Comprehensive School Health Program will be explored, with the support of the physical education teaching team, and various community resources (Social Media Safety, WiseGuyz, Grade 6 Girls Program, etc.). A focus will be placed on building strong relationships, organizing your materials for learning, and managing weekly school assignments and deadlines.

Student Learning Team (SLT)

Our school has a qualified Student Learning Team, comprised of the administrative team, a school-based psychologist, a school health nurse, a resource teacher, classroom teachers, and educational assistants to accommodate students’ personal learning profiles. The SLT meets on a weekly basis to discuss students of concern and create personalized strategies for learning. Emotional / social support is available for you if you need it by making an appointment in the main office.

Active Living and Fresh Air

All students are provided with a daily Physical Education class, from a qualified P.E. on teacher. We offer a wide selection of after school athletic team sports (cross country, soccer, volleyball, basketball, badminton, track and field and triathlon) that are designed to develop skill, promote school pride and reduce stress. Intramural sports are planned over the lunch hours for multi-grade games and fun.

​Middle Years at the CBE

Middle years learning refers to education offered to students between the ages of 10-15. These years are critical in keeping our students on the path to high school completion and their career futures. Keys for student success include: participating in hands-on, purposeful and relevant learning; creating positive relationships with peers, teachers and other adults; and being actively involved in the community and feeling supported by family, businesses and other organizations that surround them.

Learn more about our students in their middle years, including how their learning will change and how you can support your child, visit the CBE website.​

​Exploring Career Choices

For Grades 5 to 9 at the CBE, we offer Career & Technology Foundations (CTF). This is an inquiry-based, hands-on program that focuses on essential skills common to occupational areas, and our students personalize their learning based on their interests and passions.​​​
