Welcome to Brightview
Brightview School partners with APPLE Schools to create a sustainable healthy school community.

As a part of our reading instruction in our English Language Arts programming, we offer school wide guided reading. Four times per week students meet in reading groups at their reading level for 45 minutes to work at imporving their reading skills. This may be with their homeroom teacher, or may be with another teacher or Educational Assistant.
At Brightview we are fortunate to have a very active parent community, who financially work to support a variety of field trip opportunities for every student.
Parent input is essential in the operation of Brightview School. The parent advisory council meetings provide an opportunity for all parents to:
-advise the school administration in formulating school policies
-support the school's programs through volunteer and special projects
-share information, ideas and concerns

Welcome to Brightview School! On behalf of all of the staff I want to welcome every family into our school community. The staff here at our school are committed and dedicated to working with families so that each student is able to achieve their personal best.
At Brightview School, we strongly believe that parental involvement positively impacts student success at school. We ask all parents to take an active role in their child’s education by reading with them daily, attending school events, ensuring that homework is completed on a daily basis, and checking SchoolZone regularly for class and school updates.
We also believe that the quality of a child's education is enhanced when home and school have a strong relationship built through open communication. We encourage and welcome families to contact school staff at any time to discuss their child’s progress in learning.
At Brightview School we work to ensure your child(ren) are focused on achievement with a school wide emphasis on literacy. As a community of learners, we work to support and instill values and practices that give everyone a sense of belonging. All students will develop citizenship skills by being provided with opportunities to give back to Brightview School and to the greater Edmonton community.
Children are gifts with limitless potential. Through the efforts of our entire school community, we can help them to develop their own unique skills and talents and prepare them for continued success!
