In Chinook’s Edge, we measure student success in a number of ways, well beyond the important assessments that test scores provide. We look at whether our students are reading at grade level, if they feel safe at school, and if they feel equipped to continue striving toward their goals after graduation. Our most recent Accountability Pillar results from Alberta Education show a steady upward trend in many of these areas, and reflect the priorities in schools across our division where our staff focus their efforts on creating success for every student.
We are proud of our continued excellence in safe and caring measures, because we know that ensuring a safe and caring culture is the foundation for all other success. We also know that strong literacy skills are key to all learning, and Chinook’s Edge is focused on literacy as a clear priority which is embedded in all subjects across all grades. We have created strategies to continue enhancing student achievement in academic excellence, career connections and social emotional learning outcomes, so that our students are prepared to continue achieving success throughout their lives.
