Welcome to Alexander Park School where we discover our world through progressive practices in a respectful, caring environment.
Every day the team at Alexander Park strives to move closer to realizing this vision. Through engaging professional development, compassionate consideration for others and our environment, as well as staying learner focused, allows us to experience growth every day.
We believe and teach five foundational values which support our vision.
- Everyone Belongs: we are stronger because we are unique.
- Be considerate of others, self, and the environment.
- We own our mistakes and fix them.
- Every moment is an opportunity for growth.
- Celebrate the joy in every day.
When you enter our school you will find inclusive practices embodying these five values. We conduct our behaviour and create comfortable learning spaces guided by these values. Student created bulletin boards and values presentations demonstrate students' learning about, and living, these values. We often celebrate and share our learning on our Facebook page and in our weekly newesletters.
Alexander Park is situated in ruggedly beautiful, Golden BC. We are surrounded by the Western Front Range of the Rocky Mountains to the East, the Purcell Range on the West, and we are treated to the wetland wonders of the Columbia River Basin running between them. Our lifestyles are lived outdoors. Skiing, Biking, Running, Hiking, Golf, Paddling, are all common mountain town activities. Additionally, we are surrounded by the learning opportunities offered by six National Parks within one hour of town. As such our team and students value learning in the outdoor classroom. Many of our classes take routine advantage of the opportunity to learn from lessons in the natural world. Our classrooms are not limited to four walls in a heated space!
Please feel free to contact me should you have concerns or if you are interested in learning more about our vision, values, or school plan for achievement.
