School Mission Statement
Together with parents and community, Staff at Hidden Valley are committed to a focus on student achievement, and to the development of young people who are respectful, responsible and caring.
Welcome to the Hidden Valley Elementary School Website for the 2017 – 2018 school year. We welcome back all of our students and staff who were here last year and offer a special welcome to all new students and staff.
I hope the website will give you an insight into the high quality of educational experiences we offer to the 109 students enrolled in Hidden Valley School.
Hidden Valley School is a community based school which offers classes from the Learning Together Program through to grade seven. Hidden Valley School is located in the MacPherson Subdivision. It is a local school in a rural setting. Our catchment area includes the Alaska Highway North as far as Mendenhall and the North Klondike Highway (Mayo Road) as far as Fox Lake. It also includes the Ibex Valley Hamlet, Hot Springs Road, Pilot Mountain Subdivision, Hidden Valley Subdivision, and MacPherson Subdivision.
Every child in our school is valued as an individual and our aim is to develop each pupil academically, spiritually, morally, physically and socially. As children progress through the school, our team of experienced and dedicated staff plan meticulously to deliver a stimulating, exciting curriculum for the pupils in their care. We also offer an extensive program of extracurricular activities.
This year there will be some changes within the school due to the implementation of the curriculum redesign. We will be focusing on the process of learning and interest directed exploratory learning. We will also be implementing the new reporting schedule this year which includes six reports to the parents.
We welcome your presence in the school and encourage you to become active partners in the education process. Please feel free to talk to your child’s teacher or me if you have any ideas to share, encouragements, questions or concerns concerning your child’s education.
Thank you for visiting our website.
