Making summer special

Are you a kid who has always wanted to fly a drone across 220-acres of open space just to explore the landscape from 300-metres in the air? Or maybe you’re a student who’s watched the Royals playing the complex sport of polo on TV and wondered what it’s like to ride a pony while trying to hit a ball with a mallet. Or a parent thinking that if your child loves those darned video games so much maybe they should try to program one.

25 questions to help you choose the right school for your child

In Alberta, we are fortunate to have an abundance of educational opportunities and school choice. Even amongst the independent school options, there is a wide variety of missions, programs, and focus-areas. To help you set your child on the right path, we've taken a step back and compiled this objective list of questions you can use to evaluate each school you are considering.

Grade 5 students become stewards of the land

Grade 5 classes recently made their annual trek to the Ann and Sandy Cross Conservation Area to learn more about becoming Stewards of the Land. Students developed a strong awareness that the Cross Conservation Area represents a significant attempt to take action to make our world better, and that the Cross family are true Stewards of the Land.

Inspired by Possibility

The story of STS has always been one of courageous vision and action. For over 100 years beginning with our founding schools, we’ve looked for fresh possibilities for a well-rounded, inspiring education – and made them a reality.

Saying yes to an environment fostered by hospitality

Saying yes to an environment fostered by hospitality

When we think of belonging, we often associate our need to belong with our immediate environments – our peers, teachers and family. At STS, your sense of belonging is not complimentary to your experience, but rather a value that is embedded throughout your time as a student. 

The roots that start at STS

After twenty years of teaching in six different schools, I have worked with thousands of students of various ages, in various settings, and have always hoped that I'm making a positive impact in these young peoples' lives. Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) is the first school where I regularly see tangible evidence of this positive impact because it is the first place I've taught where it is the norm for student-teacher relationships to extend beyond the student's Grade 12 year; and where it is the norm for teachers and students to share life experiences.
