​​​ Welcome et bienvenue à l'École Alvin Buckwold School! ​

We are very proud of our school. Our staff is dedicated to the safety, well-being and academic education of all of our students. We believe that all children can learn if provided with the proper support and encouragement. École Alvin Buckwold School is a great place to learn and grow. We offer an English stream and a French Immersion stream, both ​from kindergarten to Grade 8. On encourage nos élèves de faire l'effort de parler français — ICI ON PARLE!​

École Alvin Buckwold School is a multi-cultural school with students and staff of various cultures. On célèbre la diversité! We believe in the value of every child as we work together to build a strong school community that is welcoming for all families. We promote the values of Canadian citizenship and celebrate our differences. Our School Community Council is active in supporting our school’s educational goals and in creating opportunities for our parents/guardians to meet one another and engage in the education of their children.

Each year our school sets strategic improvement goals to improve student learning. We are putting emphasis and professional development on increasing our students’ writing and reading levels (with a particular emphasis on our reluctant writers/readers, as well as new Canadian readers) and improving our students’ understanding in mathematics. When teachers learn and examine their instructional practice, student learning improves. We are also working to better engage our students in their learning through the integration of technology (e.g., iPads and numerous computer programs), as well as experiential inquiry-based projects. We believe in challenging our students academically, as we want them to be the critical thinkers and creative problem-solvers necessary in the 21st century.
