School Location

Riverbend School is nestled midway into the community of Riverbend and is easily accessible from any area of the city (north and south via Deerfoot Trail and east and west via Glenmore Trail).

The strength of Riverbend community lies in the dedication of the parents to building a strong sense of neighborliness, the commitment of parents to the educational opportunities for their children and the stability that comes from a very low mobility rate, allowing the majority of students to attend Riverbend School from Kindergarten through Grade 6.

About the School

The twelve year old building retains its first year lustre because staff, parents and students take pride in how it appears. The teaching spaces are bright and cheery due to natural light as well as the artful display of student work. The facility offers a breadth of teaching and learning spaces. Open classroom type team teaching settings are interspersed with more traditional closed classroom settings and all are complimented by a large and central media center, a multipurpose area, a double gymnasium and a variety of other flexible learning stations. Our school ground is large and complete with two parent constructed playgrounds, our Learning Garden and a city rink, soccer and baseball field.

At Riverbend everyone is encouraged to take risks, to be organized, to be efficient, to work hard, to play hard and to take advantage of those "windows of opportunity" when they present themselves.

Riverbend takes pride in infusing the arts across the curriculum from artists in the building working alongside teachers to integrate the arts throughout the regular curriculum. Infusing the arts throughout the curriculum allows students greater opportunities to make meaning, draw connections and represent new understandings.

From kindergarten through grade six, students are in an environment that provides structured Inquiry learning and daily opportunities to develop increasingly complex technological expertise for infusion throughout their many subjects. Our students exist within and as a part of the global community through using the Internet, e-mail and other learning applications.

We are a safe and caring community. Students live our motto: Take care of yourself, each other and our place. Good manners and respectful interactions are the norm. Students are expected to develop in the areas of mastery, independence, belonging and generosity through participation in the Circle of Courage program.

The focus of Riverbend is student achievement. Students are encouraged and expected to expend every effort to be individuals of good character and become active citizens. Staff take delight in continuous learning and in being current when it comes to educational research and practise. Riverbend offers a traditional calendar.
