Mission

Redwater School's mission is to make a difference through excellence in teaching and learning for all.

Beliefs

We believe that the most effective strategy for achieving Redwater School's mission is to continually develop our ability to function as a professional learning community. We envision a school in which staff:

  1. engage in meaningful, staff development to enhance professional skills.
  2. utilize a variety of instructional strategies to promote success for all students.
  3. demonstrate a personal commitment to the academic success and well being of all students.
  4. target specific instructional areas identified by the analysis of student data.
  5. work cooperatively and communicate effectively with students, parents, and the broader community.

Redwater School embodies the Sturgeon vision of a well-rounded education through arts, academics, athletics, entrepreneurship and citizenship. The Redwater community spirit energizes our hallways and classrooms, embodying the school philosophy of “Making a Difference!” Students from Grades 5 to 12 pursue their unique paths to success.

We offer a wide range of academic and option courses including band, business, construction, foods, musical theatre and a high school LOGOS class. Knowledge and Employability is available from Grades 8 through 12.

Learning choices include Work Experience, Registered Apprenticeship (RAP) and Green Certificate programs. Careful monitoring throughout high school yields excellent achievement and graduation rates. Scholarship and award availability assists many Redwater high school graduates who attend post-secondary institutions in Alberta and beyond. 

Positive working relationships and access to counselling services assist students with issues and enquiries. Volunteer and extracurricular opportunities abound. Activities range from gardening to football and just about everything in between. A real sense of belonging is developed through strong school and community connections.
