Valuing Diversity / Supporting Achievement
St. Anne values the diversity of our student population, and the gifts that all our students bring, and is committed to providing an environment of equity and respect for all people, which is inclusive of all learners. We strive to create a classroom in which all individual’s experiences and views are treated with respect. Our intentions are to work alongside you to shape a classroom space and teaching practice which appreciates, fosters and promotes values of human dignity, equity, non-discrimination and respect for diversity. Feel free to discuss any concerns or suggestions you have related to this with the St. Anne team.
If you have additional needs, including a disability affecting learning (called coding in Alberta’s system), being an English Language Learning student (ESL), and /or are experiencing any barriers to learning that are making school challenging we encourage you to make us aware of ways in which we can accommodate your needs.
Students fluent in other Languages may qualify to
write Language Challenge exams, through which they can earn up to fifteen
credits. Please see Mr. Kuhn about these opportunities.
