Introduction

Griffiths-Scott School is located in the Town of Millet and draws students from the surrounding acreage developments and agricultural community as well as the town.  In the 1980's the community experienced steady growth due to changing job markets and fluctuations in economics.  As a result, large numbers of our parents commute to business centers north and south of Millet. Recently we have experienced significant changes in our student population as families either move into or out of Millet based on employment opportunities. 

Griffiths-Scott School is home to students in Grades ECS to 8.  Approximately one-third of these students are bused.  Students completing grade 9 are bused to Wetaskiwin Composite High School to complete grades 9-12.

Motto

Pursuing Excellence

Mission

Our mission is to provide a respectful, caring environment valuing quality-learning experiences that result in individual growth for all members of our community.

Our Vision:  To strive to be a supportive learning community, committed to a caring respectful environment that celebrates diversity and excellence.

Philosophy

While the school provides the formal education through schooling, it is only one of the many agencies involved in providing a total education for youth.  Other agencies including the home, church, media, and community organizations are very significant influences on children.  Achievement of the goals of education must be viewed as a shared responsibility.  Maximum learning occurs when the efforts and expectations of the school are complemented by those of other agencies, especially the home.           

We are a learning community where parents and educators work together to support the students in their social, emotional, physical and intellectual development to ensure they are equipped with the skills they need to succeed in life.

Let us work together as we strive to develop the necessary values and abilities in our youth in order that they fulfill personal goals while making a positive contribution to society.

Beliefs

Responsibility is a critical life skill for success as an adult.  Thus, students will be expected to assume responsibility for their actions.  Respect, Responsibility, and Reason are three words your children will hear frequently. The greatest disservice we can do to a child is to fail to build in them a sense of responsibility to themselves and society for making reasoned and respectful choices.  By stressing these values, it is our goal to EMPOWER children to become responsible citizens.
