Quotes from Parent Advocates
“The best way to describe the experience at CES is: "It takes a village to raise a child". The level of commitment from staff at every level has surpassed our expectations. Anywhere a person turns in that building they will find an individual, whether it be a student, a teacher, a volunteer, or literally anyone in house at the time, who is willing to assist in any way they can to help you achieve success. A village it is indeed; we know that everyone who walks through these doors will then leave through the same doors with all they need to succeed.”
"Our experience here at CES has been a very positive one. The connections and relationships that my children have made here are ones to cherish. These relationships are not just between their peers but also their teachers, all staff members, and any one who walks through those doors. I am glad my children have had such a positive and supportive environment in which to learn and grow.”
How do we define success for Crossfield students?
Success is being aware of students’ needs and removing obstacles so that all students are able to learn. Having high expectations for all students and staff, being deliberate in instruction, and using assessment to improve student learning and teacher performance results in 21st Century learners who are effective, resilient citizens, actively engaged in their learning.
What makes our school good and how do we know?
The positive relationships between staff, students, parents, and the community make our school a wonderful and inviting place to be. With our students at the center of every decision, through every professional learning opportunity, and every pedagogical conversation, we are successfully creating a vibrant, engaging learning atmosphere focused on meeting the needs of the whole-child and preparing them for a future we can only imagine. Our school results from Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar indicate strong satisfaction from parents, students, and teachers and consistently exceed the provincial average.
