Our school community is united by four shared values statements: I belong; I want to know; I am responsible; and I respect. These values give direction to what we teach both inside and outside the classroom. Students take responsibility for themselves and for others in the community by participating in activities ranging from progress report conferences with teachers and parents/caregivers to collecting food for the food bank. The school division celebrates and embraces multiculturalism and respects individual spiritual beliefs. Our Shared Values transcend our differences and provide an equal opportunity to recognize and encourage the unique characteristics and contributions of students, parents/caregivers and staff.

Safety Comes First
Your child’s safety and security are paramount in Regina Public Schools. The Board of Education takes a proactive and preventative role in ensuring that all students remain safe and secure while they learn. In addition to emphasising positive behaviour and role modelling for students, initiatives include:
- a safe schools handbook that provides a comprehensive set of guidelines and procedures for staff,
- mediation and conflict resolution training programs for staff and students,
- a Resource Officer program in partnership with the Regina Police Service, and
- anti-racism and cross-cultural training programs for students and staff.
Caring and Qualified Staff
When you enrol your child in a Regina Public school you place him/her into the trust of a team of professionals dedicated to helping your child. Our staff are compassionate, bright, energetic, supportive and willing to try new innovative, research-based programs to help children learn. These new and exciting programs also encourage children and youth to remain in school.
High Academic Standards
Building on the requirements of the provincial Core Curriculum, Regina Public schools emphasize the Common Essential Learnings: communication, critical thinking, technological literacy, numeracy, independent learning, personal and social skills, and values. Student progress is closely monitored and system-wide testing provides statistical evidence of our students’ on-going academic achievements. Annually, Regina Public Schools students are recognized for their success through a wide variety of awards and scholarships. Diverse programming options allow students to prepare for their future whether they choose to pursue post-secondary education or to enter the work force.
Quality education involves a partnership between students, parents/caregivers and staff. You are invited to attend a parent forum or the annual parent convention. You may wish to become an active member of the parent association or a volunteer at the school. You also support your child in his/her efforts at school by helping with homework or reading with him/her at home. We look forward to meeting you and your child.
With supervision, students have access to the Internet as an information source for curriculum and research. There are over 4,000 computers in Regina Public Schools. This number continues to grow while equipment upgrades are also ongoing. New courses in multimedia are being offered to students, expanding their horizons.
