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.
Speech and Language Programming
Speech Language Pathologists and Speech Language Educational Assistants provide individual, group and classroom-based interventions that focus on speech and language development for eligible children.
Mental Health Supports
Mental health supports in schools are integrated with services provided through government (Alberta Health, Child & Family Services) and through community agencies. School counselors across the district provide both individual and group interventions that focus on identifying core problem areas and supporting classroom learning.
Parents as Partners
Our parents are important to us. They are actively involved in:
- Hot Lunches
- Parent Council
- Volunteering in Classrooms

Parents attitude toward education and teachers will greatly influence the attitude of children. Parents are encouraged to help their children enjoy and profit from their learning experience by:
- showing interest in what they did at school each day
- supporting the work being done at the school
- training them to pray for their fellow students, teachers, and the school as a whole
- regularly attending school functions and meetings
- showing respect and honour for the staff and the school. Your attitude towards teachers will greatly influence your child’s attitude
- ensuring that children attend school and arrive on time
