Welcome to Kildare School! Our staff is a group of dedicated and caring professionals, each with their own set of unique talents and skills. Our students also have an amazing set of talents and skills. Working together, along with families, we create a positive school climate where everyone feels safe and each individual is respected. Our school has a strong history of guiding students to achieve their best academically, socially, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Teachers work with students daily to help them to develop the skills, knowledge, and positive attitudes necessary to become responsible, respectful, caring, and contributing citizens.
Success, one student at a time - this is foundational belief at Edmonton Public Schools. At Kildare, we know that success looks different for each individual. We know that students work differently. We know that students demonstrate mastery of the curriculum in many different ways. We know that excellent assessment practices and allowing for differences will create a robust and resilient individual. We know that students need to try learning in many ways. We know they will eventually succeed. Trying a different method, taking a risk, failing often then pivoting to make new connections and new meaning - that is at the heart of learning! Achievement is much, much more than a score on any single test.
This year, we will face many challenges. The unknown may be difficult to face. Collaboration makes daunting challenges much easier to take on. I know that we, as a group, will foster growth and success for every student in our community. We are all up for the challenge!
Here’s to a great year!
