École Rio Terrace Schule is one of two schools in the Edmonton Public Schools Division to offer a unique French Immersion Strategies Program. The goal of the Learning Strategies program is to provide students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and strategies to be successful learners that they will use when they return to the regular classroom setting. Classroom programming follows the Alberta curriculum guidelines, with greater emphasis on specific areas of student needs. Emphasis is place on meeting the individual needs of the students, which are typically in the academic areas of language arts (reading, writing, and spelling) and mathematics. Specialized literacy instruction is an integral component of the program. Students are taught a variety of organization skills to support their learning and development. Additional support to meet specific learner needs is provided through small group instruction. As well, individual accommodations are made to maximize student success.
Our program provides:
- French Immersion instruction
- Small and accommodating class sizes for grade 4 – 6 students
- Individualized Program Plan (IPP) for your child
- Integration into the regular classroom setting for Physical Education, Music, Science and Social Studies
