Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chestermere District Curriculum
The curriculum allows students to explore and come up with solutions for complex real-world questions and problems, have some choices in their learning, have access to a wide range of collaborative learning tools, clearly understand what is expected of them, and learn about themselves as learners and how to assess their own learning. The district emphasizes student-centered classrooms (students working actively, with teachers acting as mentors, coaches, and guides) and blended learning (students seamlessly moving back and forth from face-to-face to digital learning environments).
Additionally, Rocky View utilizes the Alberta Program of Study curriculum, which set standards organized by grade bands in the following content areas: Aboriginal Studies, Career and Life Management, Career and Technology Foundations, Career and Technology Studies, English as a Second Language, English Language Arts, Environmental & Outdoor Education, Ethics, Fine Arts, Francophone Education, French as a Second Language, Health and Life Skills, Information and Communication Technology, International Languages, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.

- Chestermere High Music Program Receives Large Gift from Calgary Family - Calgary’s Herb Vandernet spent two years building his basement around an enormous organ with 300 pipes, but when he passed away, his family wanted to donate the instrument—made 80 years ago—to someone or someplace that would give it a good home. The family received many requests from far and wide but ultimately decided to keep the organ close to home and donate it to Chestermere High School. Music teacher Lael Johnston had planned to have the students play the organ—“a wonderful gift”—during their first band concert of the 2015-16 school year.
- WE Day Inspires Rocky View Students to Help Others - This past year, thousands of students, including many from Rocky View Schools, attended the annual WE Day—an event that features celebrities and musical artists and inspires students to help others—at Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome. The 2015 event featured the likes of the famous country music group The Band Perry and actor Henry Winkler. Chestermere Lake Middle School teacher Jon Goldie said that, each year, the event helps direct the school’s fundraising efforts, as the students see in which areas they can make a difference in the world.
Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: The Four Foundations in the Design of Learning
Rocky View Schools uses the Four Foundations in the Design of Learning: constructivism (students construct new knowledge by incorporating it into their existing learning), the development of metacognition (the ability for students to think about their own thinking and learning), the mastery of learner competencies (what students are expected to be able to do and learn), and inclusion (allowing for students of all abilities and learning styles to learn). In terms of learning competencies, Rocky View expects the 21st century learner to be a self-directed learner, an innovator, information and media literate, a collaborator, a critical thinker, a problem solver, globally aware, etc. With the help of their teachers, students develop learning goals for themselves and put together digital Learner Portfolios that follow their journeys as they become 21st century learners.
