Arts school earns high ranking

This year’s Fraser Institute Report Card on Alberta Elementary Schools was released recently. I was sent to provide images for a portion of the story Calgary Herald education reporter Sarah McGinnis was working on regarding Capital Hill School, which has garnered praise for it’s artistic approach to education.

It’s obvious, in observations of the students and conversations with the faculty, there’s a pride in the work being done at the northwest Calgary elementary school.

The young fellow working on his ‘sharing stick’ and the little ladies working on their ‘vision boards’ were never distracted, no matter how close the camera lens crept. It’s a very rare thing for a kid not to look at a camera, let alone not to play-it-up for one.
