About Our School

The Arts-Centred Learning program is a middle sSchool (Grades 5-9) focusing on learning IN and THROUGH the ARTS. Students take courses in art, drama, dance, media arts and music to learn the foundation of these disciplines.

Our distinguishing feature is the focus in core curriculum on learning and teaching as a means of understanding the world. Students are encouraged to find ways of learning that help them understand concepts, analyze experiences and develop attitudes that value the rigor that the arts require.

The prescribed Alberta Curriculum serves as the starting point for our work and we believe students have opportunities to achieve to their highest potential.

Students apply in January of each year to attend the program. Registration forms are available at Willow Park School and can be printed from our website. The registration process for the 2017 - 2018 school year has begun and we are still accepting registrations for some grades (some grades may already have a waiting list).
