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.

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.

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. 

National Volunteer Week 2019

STS volunteers have always been at the top of the list of resources that we draw upon to make our School a success. The impact of our volunteers is broad and deep as their work supports everything from student learning to governance.
