Valley Creek is a dynamic, dual track middle school located in the heart of the community of Hidden Valley. The school offers a regular and French Immersion program for students in Grades 4 – 9. Students attending our school come predominantly from Hidden Valley. Some live within the walk limits, while others are either bussed or driven from local areas within our boundaries, including Hanson Ranch. We also accept French Immersion students from MacEwan Glen, Sandstone Valley, and Kincora.
The staff at Valley Creek is dedicated to personalizing student learning through meaningful engagement of the curriculum, using collaborative planning practices. The staff is currently exploring inquiry based learning, using an integrated disciplinary focus as a means to engage our learners.
Our goal is to enhance our learner’s ability to think critically, creatively, and collaboratively using multiple forms of literacy to represent and communicate understanding. We provide students with a curriculum that is engaging, examines big ideas, issues and questions in depth, and that has multiple entry points to accommodate all learners.
The Valley Creek motto, Charger POWER, captures the core values of our school:
Pride in our community
Opportunities to succeed
Wonder of Discovery
Eagerness to learn
Respect for all
Pillars of Respect
At Valley Creek, we believe that every child has a right to an education in an environment that is safe and caring. While all students have a right to an education, that right comes with, and demands, certain responsibilities and expectations for behaviour. To help our students assume responsibilities for their learning, we encourage development of self discipline through adherence to the three pillars of respect that require students to:
- Respect self
- Respect others
- Respect the environment
