Our School

River Heights Elementary School has been the site of an integrated approach to learning since the fall of 1996.  We offer instruction to children from the city of Medicine Hat, Redcliff and the surrounding area.  Our school includes students from ELP (Early Learning Program) to Grade Six.  

The past nineteen years have seen the development of a school community characterized by enthusiastic students, energetic and supportive parents working together with teachers and staff to create a positive learning environment.  We look forward to a school year full of opportunities and growth!

Our beliefs and learning is student-centered and aligns with the Ministerial Order; where our integrated learning is connected with the 10 Competencies and the 3 E's.

A cross-curricular competency is an interrelated set of attitudes, skills and knowledge that are drawn upon and applied to a particular context for successful learning and living.  The 10 Competencies are developed by every student, in every grade and across every subject/discipline area:

A. Know how to learn
B. Think Critically
C. Identify and solve complex problems
D. Manage information
E. Innovate
F. Create opportunities
G. Apply multiple literacy
H. Demonstrate good communication skills and the ability to work cooperatively with others
I. Demonstrate global and cultural understanding
J. Identify and apply career and life skills

Through our classroom and school programs we strive to develop students who are 
"Engaged Thinkers" and "Ethical Citizens" with "Entrepreneurial Spirits".
