JUNIOR HIGH PROGRAM – THOSE KEY MIDDLE YEARS!

At Edge School we include Grades 5 and 6 as part of our Junior Program. We recognize the big leap many of our incoming Grade 5 and 6 students take when entering our doors. It can be a daunting task to leave the comforts of a community elementary school to join students from Grades 5 through 12. Our staff is well-equipped to provide the necessary support our new Grade 5 and 6 students require.

We offer the core curriculum as determined by Alberta Education.  Our students take the following courses:

  • English Language Arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Sport Education
  • Spanish (Grades 7-9)
  • Physical Education
  • Creative Arts and Leadership

Sport Education combines sport-specific skill development (in Hockey, Soccer, Golf and Dance) as well as classroom work in sport psychology, sport nutrition and sport theory.

We encourage prospective Grade 4 and 5 students to spend a day  in the school “shadowing” one of our current students. Join their class in sport-specific training; sit in on English, Math, Science and Social; eat a great meal designed specifically for student-athletes in the cafeteria; and even do a core work-out at the Duckett Performance Centre.
