School Philosophy

Every Student who walks through our doors will be given every opportunity to be successful, both inside and outside the classroom.

At Dan Knott School we set high expectations for student achievement through a collaborative approach to teaching, partnerships with the community, specialized programming focusing on the unique needs of each student, and many engaging activities to help each student feel part of a happy, productive and caring school. Our supportive environment encourages and provides staff and students opportunities for growth and development, including many student and staff leadership roles within the school and community. We set high expectations for staff and students to be positive members of our community.


Our Flex Program is currently on hold due to AHS restrictions. We look forward to returning to Flex Thursday as soon as possible.

Students at Dan Knott have the unique opportunity to choose their Thursday Flex schedule. Thursdays begin in Home Room classes from 8:35 – 9:05 and this is followed by four one hour classes. Students have the option to choose one or more sessions relating to their core academic subjects and up to three sessions that they are passionate about.  This self-directed learning is a fantastic opportunity for students to become engaged in their learning. Thursdays at Dan Knott are all about student choice and student voice! Programming is based on Alberta Student Competencies
