Middle School - No middle ground

STS Middle School students enjoy a safe-haven where they can explore this new chapter in their education and their burgeoning independence.

Grounded in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP), students experience course content through real-life context and state of the art technology. They are encouraged to ask questions, think critically, and work collaboratively.

Students benefit from highly-qualified, dedicated faculty and a learning environment with a small teacher-student ratio, consistent homeroom groupings, and individual teacher-advisors. Students build supportive relationships while maximizing their full potential.

Middle School students are provided with an excellent foundation in the core academic subject areas of math, science, English, and social studies, with equal time dedicated to languages, fine and performing arts, design, and physical education including exploring the great outdoors. Outside the classroom, students can follow their passions and explore new talents by joining student-led clubs, speech and debate, athletic teams, community service and leadership activities.

The opportunities provided both in and out of the classroom inspire students to move forward as well-balanced, confident individuals who go on to lead purposeful lives.

It starts with today's youth by Aydin Bhojani '20

The Youth Council is a new committee of the Calgary Foundation that hopes to inform and empower youth. The idea for the Youth Council emerged from the success of the Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) Primary Years Programme (PYPx). Having just completed its third year, the PYPx has been very successful in teaching youth about vulnerable people in our community and empowering them to advocate on behalf of those groups. The project has had a profound impact not only on the community and the school, but also on the Calgary Foundation itself.
