21st Century Learning
The Fort McMurray Public School District is committed to preparing all our learners for the 21st century! Our students are following a pathway designed to support engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit!
The 21st Century Learner will be able to succeed in the world because they will know how to adapt in order to meet the challenges of life - embracing the opportunities of a constantly evolving world and learning competencies such as critical thinking, technology, creativity, and social responsibility.
Inclusive education and success for all will continue to be a target as we help students learn anywhere, anytime, anyplace!
Our philosophy is to ensure that all students with special needs have opportunities to be in the regular classrooms whenever possible.
