Valley View School is a Kindergarten to Grade 5 school situated in the community of Dover serving families from Forest Lawn and Dover. In our school we are proud to support the Medicine Wheel Pre-School program and the school has a full day Medicine Wheel Kindergarten and two additional full day Kindergarten programs. In the 2017-2018 school year, we welcomed students to our new science program (K – 5).
At Valley View School, we believe that learning is natural and to make sure our students learn and are successful we strive to personalize learning opportunities for every student. We value the individual stories that everyone in our building brings to our learning spaces and we purposefully extend literacy in all program inquiries.
Our Learning Commons is a great part of our school with an excellent collection of books that represent the diverse cultures in our school. We have a group reading corner, and a large space for making work, engaging in group work, collaboration and inquiry learning. Our large wall murals outside and inside the Learning Commons represent the work we engaged in with a Calgary artist who guided our thoughts and expressions to leave a lasting legacy.
