About Eagle Butte High School
“Giving Our Students Roots and Wings”
Eagle Butte High School serves a wide geographic area, with a mix of three hundred and seventy rural and urban students. Students travel from as far away as Hilda and Schuler to the north, Irvine and Walsh to the east, Elkwater to the south, Seven Persons to the southwest, and Redcliff and Ralston to the northwest. The main junior high feeder schools include Ralston, Redcliff, Seven Persons, Irvine, and Schuler. Each year we also register several students from the city of Medicine Hat. We can accommodate approximately four hundred and fifty students, and have a staff of forty-two.
Our high school program is based on the semester system, offering a full range of core courses as mandated by Alberta Education. We are able to offer almost all of the core courses in both semesters, allowing for flexibility in balancing student timetables. A classroom support program offers extra help to students who require academic assistance, while at the same time allowing them to be fully integrated into the regular program. Parallel curriculum is also provided in a timely manner for fully included students that are significantly below grade level abilities. All staff work to provide accommodations and individualization of instruction as required. As well, we offer fine arts courses in Music, Choir, Drama, and Art. CTS strands include Information Processing, Experiential/General Psychology, Construction, Fabrication, Robots-Cars-Hovercrafts, Cosmetology, Design Studies, Foods, Communication Technologies, Mechanics, Career Transitions and Wildlife. French is offered as a second language at the school, as is German.
An Off-Campus Education Program allows students to access Work Experience, Green Certificate, and Registered Apprenticeship Programs. We also continue to offer the PFO course (Production Field Operations) in conjunction with SAIT, ENCANA, and YOUTH CAREER DEVELOPMENT. There is a very strong effort from our Division Office to increase dual credit opportunities for students through a variety of post-secondary institutions. These connections will continue to open up future opportunities for all of our students to benefit from if they are so inclined to take part.
School Council / Parent Association
The School Council at Eagle Butte High School continues to support and improve the school through its monthly meetings where they are given the opportunity to offer input and provide direction to our school. The Parent Association funds yearly projects such as Work Experience draws, perfect attendance awards, school equipment, technology items and athletic needs.
Our School Council is a hard working group of parents, very committed to helping in whatever ways or means possible.
