“With Enthusiasm and Support
We Challenge Learners to Achieve Their Highest Potential
And Develop into Responsible and Caring Citizens.”



At Iron River School, we Believe:
Each and every person can learn and has the opportunity to learn; 
Students and staff are entitled to a safe and caring learning environment;
Stakeholders should have opportunities for meaningful involvement;
Education is everyone’s responsibility.

Our Mandate 
At Iron River School we provide our students with a broad educational program that helps them:

  • Develop knowledge, skills and attitudes in all subject areas;
  • Demonstrate critical and creative thinking skills in problem solving and decision making;
  • Demonstrate competence in using information technologies;
  • Know how to learn and work independently and as part of a team;
  • Develop desirable personal characteristics and the ability to make ethical decisions;
  • Demonstrate initiative, leadership, flexibility and persistence;
  • Realize the need for lifelong learning.

We also prepare students to make positive contributions to society through communities, the workplace, and/or post-secondary studies.
(From Curriculum Handbook for Parents, 2007-2008, Alberta Education pg. 31)

In addition to these learning goals we believe it is important for our students to:

  • Read for information, understanding, and enjoyment;
  • Write and speak clearly and accurately;
  • Learn about the history and geography of Canada and the global community;
  • Recognize the importance of responsibility and take pride in accomplishments;
  • Evaluate their own endeavors and continuously strive to better them by showing that they live the essential virtues of Respect, Empathy, Kindness, Fairness, Self-Control, Tolerance, and Conscience.
