    Alternative Programs

    German Bilingual Program:

    Our highly successful German Bilingual program has been a part of Edmonton Public Schools since 1978.  Our students follow the required Provincial curriculum while studying 50% of their lessons in the German language and 50% in English.  Our students study both German language arts and Mathematics in German, as well as some Physical Education, Health, Art and other subjects to meet the 50% language requirements.  Students learn to speak and write in German and enjoy many of the cultural aspects of German speaking countries including First Day celebrations  for grade one students, Oktoberfest, St. Martin's Day, St. Nicholas Day and Fasching.  We are supported through AEGBEE (Association for English German Bilingual Education of Edmonton) in a variety of ways (resources, speakers and an exchange program in Junior High) and welcome both new and native German speakers.  New German learners may join the program at the kindergarten and grade one level.  However, native speakers of German may join at any grade provided they are competent in the language (as assessed by our teachers).

    Unser Deutsches Bilinguales Programm

    Um den neuen Anforderungen des 21. Jahrhunderts  gerecht zu werden, bekommt das Erlernen einer Fremdsprache eine immer größere Bedeutung.

    Als bilinguale Schule in einem multikulturellen Umfeld fördern wir deshalb die Begegnung verschiedener Kulturen und globale Offenheit.

    An unserer Schule existiert das Deutsche Bilinguale Programm seit 1978. Hier erlernen die Schüler/innen neben der englischen Sprache ebenso intensiv die Fremdsprache Deutsch. Im Zusammenhang mit der Sprache wird auch die deutsche Kultur vermittelt und gepflegt. Zum Beispiel feiern wir als gesamte Schule Schulanfang, Sankt Martinstag, Nikolaus, Fasching und Ostern.

    In allen Klassenstufen wird der Lehrplan der Provinz Alberta zu 50% auf Deutsch unterrichtet. Die Schüler/innen haben Deutschunterricht, und gleichfalls werden Mathematik, Sport und ausgewählte Stoffeinheiten anderer Unterrichtsfächer auf Deutsch unterrichtet. Durch diese Immersionsmethode sind die Schüler/innen besser in der Lage, Deutsch nicht nur im Alltag, sondern auch fachlich zu gebrauchen. Als Nachweis ihrer Sprachkompetenz haben die Schüler/innen am Ende der 6. Klasse die Möglichkeit, das Deutsche Sprachdiplom A2 zu erwerben. Dieses Sprachdiplom ist international anerkannt und wird von Deutschlands Zentralstelle für Auslandsschulwesen vorgegeben.

  • Rideau Park is a Leader In Me School

    Rideau Park is a Leader In Me School

    "We only get one chance to prepare our students for a future that none of us can possibly predict. What are we going to do with that one chance?" Stephen R. Covey

    At Rideau Park School, we are a community of leaders. Through our Leader in Me Program, which utilizes the principles of Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, our desire is for students to become leaders in their own right while feeling unique, important and worthy. By providing meaningful leadership and citizenship opportunities, we know students will reach their true potential as leaders and fine citizens in our community. Students are taught to think with the end in mind, set goals and be proactive in their learning, while developing strong 21st century literacy and citizenship skills across the curriculum.

    The world has entered an era of the most profound change in human history, creating new challenges for today's students. Meeting these challenges will require a different skill set than previous generations. In an effort to provide our students with key skills vital for the 21st century, we teach these habits through the Leader in Me process.

    • Habit 1: Be Proactive® - You're in Charge

    • Habit 2: Begin With the End in Mind® - Have a Plan

    • Habit 3: Put First Things First® - Work First, Then Play

    • Habit 4: Think Win-Win® - Everyone Can Win

    • Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood® - Listen Before You Talk

    • Habit 6: Synergize® - Together Is Better

    • Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw® - Balance Feels Best

    Through this program, we teach a generation of leaders one child at a time.

    We encourage and support all students to take on at least one leadership role at our school each year. Each spring we hold a leadership fair, after which students apply from among the following roles:

    • Patrollers

    • Grade 6 Leadership

    • Student Council

    • Office Helpers

    • Morning Greeters

    • Technology/Special Events team

    • Kindergarten Leaders

    • Morning Announcement Leaders

    • Lunch helpers

    • Door/Office Decorators

Principal's Message

It is my privilege to serve as principal of this fine school that offers programming in Kindergarten to Grade 6 in both English and German.  Rideau Park School is located in the mature residential community of Rideau Park in southwest Edmonton, just off the Whitemud Drive.

At Rideau Park, we are a community of leaders. Through the integration of Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People into our curriculum and activities, we provide students with the tools to develop essential life skills and characteristics they will need for success in the 21st century.  With this program, our objective is to help students discover their own strengths, while allowing teachers to find opportunities for all children to grow in their abilities and confidence – and become leaders!

Our dedicated staff works in partnership with our parents and the community. We believe that the quality of education is enhanced when home and school have a strong, respectful relationship and ongoing, regular communication.

Together, we are committed to assisting all students to realize their personal best. Within a caring and positive learning environment, our students are encouraged to set high goals for themselves in terms of their academics, behaviour and citizenship.

Rideau Park is an elementary school our students are proud to attend.  We hope you join our community of learning!

Sylvia Becker, Principal
