Athlone School is a student-centered elementary school committed to strong educational programs delivered in a supportive, nurturing and safe environment. The instructional focus is on literacy across the curriculum. Balanced Literacy, 6+1 Writing Traits, Middle Years Literacy Intervention and our Targeted Intervention Program are the foundational blocks for language arts instruction. As a district site for students requiring a BLAP (Behaviour and Learning Assistance Program) placement, we look for appropriate subject- specific inclusion opportunities.
Athlone School serves the communities of Athlone and Dunvegan and offers full-day Kindergarten. We belong to the West 8 network whose mission is to create a unified community where quality learning comes first. Collaborative relationships guide our journey in fostering resiliency and success for all. As an APPLE (Alberta Project Promoting active Living & healthy Eating) and Leader in Me school we work hard to prepare all our students for successful and healthy futures. Our school has excellent support from our Parent Support Association and from many community organizations.
