    School Philosophy

    We pursue excellence through dedication to our mission: building character and competence through leadership and an active, healthy lifestyle.  We build great character by developing habits and traits connected to the 7 habits as part of the processes in the Leader in Me.  We develop competence through the acquisition of what students are expected to know and be able to do by the end of each school year in relation to the Alberta Program of Studies. 

    We are an APPLE School.  This means that we are part of the Alberta Project Promoting Active Living and Healthy Eating school-wide.  We sincerely believe in comprehensive school health as an integral part of education.
