Quick Facts

CAPE provides personalized programming to support each student as they pursue their personal goals. Small class sizes and the resulting low student to staff ratio is foundational to supporting academic and personal excellence.

The community is a partner in learning as it provides the domain for opportunities and experiences which expand beyond the school, including leadership, collaboration, diversity, and resourcefulness.

CAPE Student Recognition

CAPE students have experienced wonderful success with their participation in many school wide events. Throughout the school years students have participated in different math contests such as Math League, grade levels 4 through 8, and algebra for grade 9 students. The students also competed in the Waterloo University contests - Gauss, grade 7 and 8, and Pascal, grade 9. Every year CAPE participates in an art show in which the Esplanade hosts a division called "school art." The students have had the opportunity to have their very best artwork selected to be displayed. Phenomenal teamwork has been demonstrated while competing in after school sports teams.

Land Acknowledgment

Under the leadership of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit team, CAPE has developed a Land Acknowledgment document as part of the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Teacher Donna Goyer-Franz’s interest in the First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture, history and traditions was instrumental in the development of the document. Bruce Dynes of Framing & Art Centre in Medicine Hat graciously framed this document and it now hangs in our school’s main entrance for all to see, read, and reflect.

CAPE Community Donations

CAPE school has contributed towards many community organizations. Giving back to the community is an important and integral aspect of the partnership we have with our community. Students have fundraised through a school bake sale earning $1600 which was donated generously to the Ronald McDonald House. Students also have raised money through various school wide activities earning money to be donated to the Make-A-Wish-Foundation. We are very proud of these efforts from our wonderful CAPE families and students.
