About the School

Arbour Lake School opened in 2007. We enjoy our sunny location and views from the northwest hills of Calgary. Over 800 students from grades 5 to 9 join our community every day; they arrive from Arbour Lake, Citadel Park and Scenic Acres. We welcome the opportunity to work with these 21 Century pre-adolescents and adolescents.

About School Name

The school is named after the community it serves.

School Mission

To create an exemplary middle school for the 21st century learner.

Unique Points

    Our teachers have studied current research including the work of the Association for Middle Level Education and emphasize a project-based learning environment that is integrated, exploratory, challenging and relevant. Older and younger students work with staff mentors to create a strong sense of community. The following structures help us respond to our learners:

  • Paired homerooms that allow two core teachers (math/science and humanities) to spend a significant amount of time with their students in order to discover each studentís learning profile and potential.
  • An opportunity to explore several complementary courses, representing career and technology foundations and fine arts.
  • A focus on these 21st Century skills - information/media technology, critical/creative thinking, problem solving, communication/collaboration - in all subject areas.
  • A variety of clubs, athletics and co-curricular activities that also help students explore their interests/strengths.
  • A culture of caring and respect based on our Coyote Code.
