Middle Years


The middle years – often referred to as middle school or junior high – is crucial to a child’s development as they leap toward the high school years. The grade configurations vary at RVS schools; please refer to your neighbourhood school to view the grades offered.

RVS is proud to offer many options to students in their schools, from exploring French to robotics to drama. Some schools also offer sports academies. Please view the Reach Beyond Your Classroom fact sheet for more information.

RVS also offers French Immersion, Christian programming, home school and online school in the middle years.

Before registering your child, please review the important documentation you'll need on hand.

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 will include summary information, narratives about their strengths, areas for improvement and next steps.

Parents/guardians can access their children’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.
