Swan Hills Public School
The Swan Hills School offers the best of the academic, personal and practical worlds for its students.
Through strong community interaction, high standards of teaching, and a unique partnership with the local business community, students at Swan Hills School thrive. The school is currently housing Playschool to Grade 12.
Aware of its community responsibilities, the school has a very open communication policy not only with its parents, but also with the general public. While the parents are updated on school activities through monthly newsletters, Swan Hills School also showcases its activities to the business community through a traveling bulletin board, and articles in the local newspaper capture school events.
However, communication between Swan Hills School and community stakeholders isn’t just one way. The school boasts a very strong Parent Advisory Council that provides feedback to the school administrators from both the parents and the community. The advisory council also recruits volunteers for the school and helps with special events.
Technologically, the school is one of the better equipped throughout the province of Alberta. Each classroom in the school has four computers installed; as well, there are two fully equipped computer labs. The school offers three computer courses throughout the year and has Internet access through SchoolNet. Easy accessibility to computers with a focus on computer literacy ensures that students graduate with finely-honed skills that prepare them for the future.
