We expect excellent results from all students.  Our achievement results  from the 2011 - 2012 provincial achievement tests indicate  our students continue to perform very well in all four core subject areas (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies).  You may refer to the Academic Achievement section under the About Our School category to see our June 2012 results.  All staff members work together to create a school focused on student learning. Our teachers, who are passionate and knowledgeable about their subject areas, design instruction and assessments so that students are engaged in and responsible for their learning. Our teaching assistants provide small group assistance for struggling learners. To encourage students to be lifelong readers, our extensive library provides current high interest books. Our office staff assists students daily with inquiries, concerns, and maintaining school operations. For our school to be a source of pride and a hub of learning, our custodial staff maintains a clean environment.

Londonderry has also been commended for its excellence in student conduct and citizenship. All of our students are expected to treat themselves, others, and our school with respect and fairness. Periodically, we hold assemblies in our gym to create a cohesive school culture and community. We discuss important issues, mark significant events and celebrate student leadership which raises awareness and donations for many charitable organizations.

Because Londonderry school offers a wide range of complementary courses and extracurricular clubs, our students are able to develop their talents and interests. The incredible work of students in our many Performing and Visual Arts courses can be regularly seen at district performance and exhibits.

Our Mandarin Bilingual program was one of the first in Alberta and has an uncontested reputation for its rigorous language development and successful alumni. Our Mandarin program is further enhanced with our partnership with Beijing School #57.  Both the Mandarin and French courses contribute to the diversity in our school and have helped create not only a tolerance for multiculturalism, but a celebration of it.

Our many sports team throughout the years have consistently achieved high standings in district leagues, playoffs and tournaments, as evident in our overflowing showcases of medals and trophies. The competitive spirit also drives our intramural program as every lunch hour our gym is teeming with students hoping to win for their homeroom.

Londonderry school’s tradition of excellence is a source of pride and is a continuing inspiration for students and staff to reach their individual potential and to strengthen the school community.
