Quotes from Parent Advocates

"With a son, currently in Gr. 2 and another son starting Kindergarten, we could not be more pleased with Westbrook School. From the awesome teachers and support staff, who provide dedicated and focused teaching and learning opportunities, to the students and parents, Westbrook has a very unique atmosphere and provides for a very diverse learning experience. Students at Westbrook not only experience the learning of curriculum like every other student and school in Alberta, they also learn a sense of community, strength and tradition. Although the school may be small and is located in a rural setting, the teachers make sure that the students do not miss out on urban learning experiences; in fact, they ensure they have an opportunity to be a part of a very diverse learning program. Not only do they get to participate in field trips to the science center, theater, swimming pools, ski hills, inter-school sporting events, they also get to experience and be a part of team sports, in house theater productions, artist in residence, fun lunches, farm safety presentations, book fairs, lip sync, and student families. The older students also get to experience things like Gr. 6 camp, the French trip to Quebec and the Gr. 8 graduation trip. Given the school’s park like location they even take learning a step further in providing an opportunity to learn about street safety with annual trips to Safety City as this is not something Westbrook students deal with on a daily basis. Westbrook is an exceptional school and truly exhibits the spirit of being the biggest little school around."

"As a parent of 3 kids, when I first considered moving my kids to a school in Cochrane, I looked at the stats for schools on the Education Alberta website. I found Westbrook to be on top, this is what drove me to consider Westbrook for my kids. This was our first year at Westbrook so we did not know what to expect. At the beginning of the school year my kids were a little upset about leaving old friends. Immediately while waiting in line on the first day, they were assigned a friend to help them not feel so alone! At this moment, I knew this school was special. We were presently surprised to learn about all the events at the school, from the Walk-a-thon at the beginning of the year to the school lip sync contest! This is the only school that I know off that still holds a school fair, I loved the fact they have such an amazing platform for all their students to showcase their talents and be rewarded for it. Another great program in this school is when all the classes come together in their little family groups and they all get to work with other students from all grades. I feel through this interaction helps the kids really get to know everyone at the school, they learn to respect their peers and work well with them. I feel the school is very welcoming, the staff and students have a great respect for each other, and they care for one another. I am so happy we found this gem of a school and look forward to being a part of it for years to come."
