Tips for successful learning at home

STS recognizes that we are all experiencing trying circumstances that create increased stress for students and their families. Families are experiencing increased pressure as living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens become classrooms and office spaces, as parents evolve as 'triple-threats' with working, parenting and now, home-schooling. 

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.

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. 

Building a future with innovative minds - computational thinking with a purpose

Technology-integrated learning at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir (STS) focuses on the 5 C's: collaboration, communication, critical thinking and computational thinking. The STS curriculum teaches students to be digitally-literate through the introduction of the fifth 'C', computational thinking. STS recognizes that proper technology integration and education is about the design of the learning experiences that not only help students strengthen their digital abilities, but to also help students think critically about what tool best enables their learning in different situations.
