At Vincent Massey School, our priority is to give students the fullest academic, physical, social, and emotional developmental experiences possible. Our academic, athletic, band and citizenship programs provide enormous opportunities for student growth.
Academically, the unique learning styles and needs of individual students are recognized and assignments and projects reflect student voice and choice. As well, students are given opportunities for enrichment and additional support. We believe fundamentally in the importance of “options” for adolescent learners and host a complementary program that offers students opportunity to take such classes as Band, French, Applied Tech, Drama, Dance, Film Explorations, Art, Foods, Outdoor Ed., Computer Tech., Fashion Studies, and Leadership.
Massey has enjoyed a proud tradition of a very strong physical education program. Students are offered extensive choice in their physical education classes and may further access physical developmental opportunities through our intramural program and extra-curricular athletic teams in volleyball, soccer, cross-country, basketball, badminton, and track and field.
Massey’s Band program has long been renowned for its tradition of excellence. In a relatively short period of time, students develop the skill and ability to perform confidently on several stages in Calgary and across western Canada.
Opportunities for students to further develop their sense of character and citizenship are experienced through our Leadership and Outdoor Education classes as well as through involvement with Massey’s student-run “Legacy Corporation” which has been extensively involved in supporting a number of international humanitarian causes.
