  • Arts Core School

    Arts Core School

    We believe that just like imagination learning has no boundaries. Student success and growth is achieved when children discover their own talents and interests through music, art, drama and dance. We believe that the arts serve as a vehicle for teaching and learning. We value the development of community partnerships that enrich our students' artistic and academic experiences. We are committed to improving student achievement and to helping all students realize their full potential. Student growth is enhanced when staff members and parents share responsibility in the development and education of the child.

Welcome

Welcome to Afton School of the Arts

Our Arts Core provides programming that emphasizes art, music, drama and dance as discrete disciplines as well as enrichment to all subjects within the Alberta curriculum.

We encourage our students to rise to the challenge of discovering their own talents and interests and to excel in all areas of their school lives.

In partnership with our parents and community, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment that enables all of our students to grow and gain skill in all possible ways.  We have an outstanding, dedicated staff with high expectations for student achievement and behaviour. We are proud to have supportive parents and positive, caring and creative children as partners in learning. Parent involvement is an essential part of our success, and we value the participation of parents as members of our learning community.
