Quotes from Parent Advocates
“Bow Valley High School is a place where students are learning the skills they need so that they can continue on their journey to college, university, or to the work place. Students are able to experience diverse opportunities, from learning basic cooking skills to participating in the most amazing four-day outdoor adventures to learning how to stay ahead of the ever changing technology we have all come to rely on. As a parent whose children have been at Bow Valley High for a combined six years, I know I made the right choice in sending them there.”
“Being new to the province and new to the community, Bow Valley has made all of the difference for our teenage daughters. The staff went above and beyond to welcome our children, inviting them and recruiting them to be involved in the Bow Valley community.”
