Each student is an individual with unique interests, goals and strengths. All students should be given the same opportunity to succeed in the intermediate division. That's why the government launched the Student Success Strategy in the spring of 2006 to reach every student in grades 7-12.

The strategies are built upon four pillars: literacy, numeracy, program pathways and most recently the community, culture and caring pillar. Teachers have been trained to meet the needs of their students based upon Gospel values. It is the prime objective to build capacity to support students and staff.

A Student Success Profile identifies students at risk and assists teachers in providing a program. The Grade 8-9 transition plan compliments the Student Success Strategy which outlines a smooth entrance into secondary education for our graduating grade 8 students.

The premise is to provide successful learning opportunities for all with an emphasis on those most at risk, one student at a time!

A report on the "Student Success Initiative" was presented to the Board on March 24, 2007.
