School Education Plan
Lakeland Ridge School in Sherwood Park provides an instructional program for Kindergarten to Grade 9 students focusing on academic excellence, technology, fitness and recreation, art, and community involvement. Students may choose to bring in their own computing devices such as laptops and netbooks to enhance their learning in class. A full complement of elementary and junior high courses supplements a broad range of options. All students have excellent access to technology, as well as fitness facilities, CTS facilities, and an art studio.
The school's motto "Pride in our Pack" is demonstrated daily through strong literacy programs and initiatives, an excellent character education program, leadership and peer support opportunities, athletics, and extracurricular activities such as the Linking Generations program. Throughout the school, Kona, the school's wolf mascot, is in high profile. It is evident Lakeland Ridge School staff and students have "Pride in Their Pack" as they continue to broaden and strengthen this neighbourhood school.
