About Us

Tom Baines School at a Glance

  • Academic classes are grouped in a "pod" structure where a cluster of homerooms share the same teacher team. This allows for greater communication between teachers, enabling them to facilitate individual student needs as well as work on collaborative program strategies. 
  • Complementary courses include all the fine arts (art, band, dance, drama, film, performing arts), French, and various strands of career and technical studies (C.T.S.), including those linked to computers, construction, and foods/ fashion studies. As well, there are modules emphasizing fitness and environmental education. http://school.cbe.ab.ca/school...
  • Technology is apparent throughout the building. Students have extensive opportunities in all classes to become proficient with computers and the variety of applications relevant to their program. 
  • Students with special learning needs are included in regular classes. They are supported by a resource team who work with classroom teachers to modify and differentiate programs and expectations to ensure success.
