At Vernon Barford, we offer the full complement of core subjects approved and required by Alberta Education.  Students take English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Physical Education, complementary courses, and a second language (Spanish or French).

Vernon Barford students consistently score amongst the highest in Alberta and EPSB in the core academic classes of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.  We are unique because all students receive individualized timetables and do not travel with the same learning group all day.  In addition to providing evidence of learning (projects, assignments, tests, etc.), we also indicate each student's level of learning concerning curricular outcomes.  Rather than only providing a single indicator, we provide a learner profile highlighting celebration and growth areas in each curricular area.  Finally, we see learning as a journey and as such, students can gain and show higher levels of learning in all outcomes over the year.
