"Repeatedly recognized by the province of Alberta for its high academic success among students."
Each year, Alberta grade 3, 6, 9, and 12 students participate in the Provincial Achievement Testing Program. This program tests each student's achievements based on Alberta's provincial average with regard to this testing. This is a significant statement since International Testing Programs show Alberta students continue to be among the best in the world. 2006 test results for the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), placed Alberta students second in Science, fourth in reading and in the top ten for Mathematics. Results show that Alberta students score above the Canadian average in all subject areas in both national and international testing.
