The province of Alberta, Canada, has one of the finest educational systems in the world. At Canadian School we are proud to have implemented its curricula as the core of our program.
Our education program ensures that our students realize their potential, achieve their hopes, dreams and aspirations. It’s about each student belonging in a caring and inclusive network of educators who mentor and coach them to achieve their potential. It’s about strengthening our society, through the variety of experiences that students have at school and it their community.
Education researchers in Alberta, Canada, and around the world, investigating the requirements of 21st Century state that the education system must strive to instill the following qualities and abilities in our youth:
- Engaged Thinker: Who thinks critically and uses technology to learn, innovate, communicate, and discover; who works with multiple perspectives and disciplines to identify problems and find solutions; who communicates ideas to others; and who, as a lifelong learner, adapts to change with an attitude of optimism and hope for the future.
- Ethical Citizen: Who builds relationships based on humility, fairness and open-mind, who demonstrates respect, empathy and compassion; and who through teamwork, collaboration and communication contributes fully to the community and the world.
- Entrepreneurial Spirit: who creates opportunities and achieves goals through hard work, perseverance and discipline; who strives for excellence and earns success; who explores ideas and challenges the status quo; who is competitive, adaptable and resilient; and who has the confidence to take risks and make bold decisions in the face of adversity.
