Quote from a Parent Advocate
“This is our third year at Edwards, and we have seen our children flourish in this environment from the very beginning. Our boys are completing Grade 2 and Kindergarten this year, and we are thrilled to watch them grow in their French language abilities, problem solving, and creativity under the great care and guidance of their teachers and the "Star Team!" At home we see the "Leader in Me" qualities shine in how they play and interact with each other and friends in the neighbourhood. We are looking forward to watching this flourish in the years to come!” Michelle I.
How do we define success for our students?
Beginning with the end in mind, we want the learners of Edwards to be the leaders of tomorrow. At École Edwards, students come to us ready to find the leader in themselves. They leave us equipped with the tools to be leaders for life. Success for our learners is defined by their ability to reach their own personal excellence. It means that teachers help our young leaders to know themselves as learners and meet them where they need to be met on the learning continuum. Success means that our 21st Century learners are actively engaged in their learning and parents/guardians are meaningfully connected to our school. We know that through differentiated teaching practices, regular infusion of technology, and intentional focus and direct instruction on all forms of literacy, mixed with a real sense of excitement and curiosity, our students will be successful.
What makes our school good and how do we know?
At École Edwards, we believe in the leadership potential of each learner – student, parent/guardian, and staff member. When we synergize, we know opportunities for deep, rich, and engaging learning are enhanced, and everyone benefits. This win-win mindset lets us know that our school is a place that not only values learning, but one that also produces strong leaders for our future.
