High School


High school is a time of great personal and academic growth for students. At RVS, we offer an array of courses designed to spark students’ interest as well as core programming. Each of our high schools offers different optional courses to best serve their student communities. RVS also offers several part- and full-time programs both in and out of traditional classrooms, giving our students many opportunities to connect to their passions and interests.

Please view the Reach Beyond Your Classroom fact sheet for more information on opportunities outside of regular classrooms.

RVS also offers French Immersion, Advanced Placement (contact your school for more information), home education and online school for high school.

Assessment and Communication of Student Learning

Students are assessed based on outcomes in Alberta’s K to 12 curriculum and programs of study.

Teachers use a variety of strategies to communicate student progress and achievement. Communication about student achievement includes summary information and narratives about the student’s strengths, areas for improvement and next steps.

Parents/guardians can access their child’s learning progress throughout the year through the PowerSchool portal. This real-time reporting means data is available any time, without waiting for scheduled report cards. Parents/guardians are also encouraged to check in with their child’s teacher as desired. For more information, please see our Parent Guide to Real Time Reporting.

Parents/guardians will be invited to meet with their child’s teacher in the fall and spring to discuss the student’s progress.

High school students receive final marks for each course at the end of each semester. This could include final exam marks or diploma exam marks. These marks are available in the PowerSchool portal after the end of each semester.

Indigenous Post-secondary Student Awards

RVS’ Indigenous Learning department has curated a list of post-secondary scholarships, bursaries and awards for Indigenous students. This list is intended to promote equity and access to education.

Land Acknowledgment

Rocky View Schools would like to acknowledge the land and recognize all the Indigenous Peoples whose footprints have marked these lands from time immemorial. Together, we can learn and honour the Ways of Knowing of Indigenous Peoples for all future generations.
