Isabel Campbell’s catchment area includes the neighborhoods of Westpointe, Pinnacle Ridge and O’Brien Lake. With a diverse school population of 618 students, our focus remains on developing strong community minded students. We offer a variety of programs for our population including a variety of student clubs and interschool athletic opportunities. With focused, student lead elementary assemblies, a middle level leadership opportunities and junior high leadership class, students in our school have a variety of opportunities to engage both with the school and extended school community.
Our instructional staff includes 31 full time educators, with an additional 4 teachers who provide district music opportunities in band, orchestra, choir and guitar to our middle level students. In addition to our teaching staff we have an additional 16 support staff who provide several services to the school including administrative assistants, counselors, custodians, education assistants and library technicians. Our school also provides home to the Ronald McDonald House of Northern Alberta, for whom their regional office is located within our building.
Isabel Campbell is proud to have an active school council which meets on the second Wednesday of each month. This council has been instrumental in providing services which improve the climate in the school. Some of their endeavors have resulted in a winter warm up project which provides students without proper winter tuques and mittens the opportunity to take or borrow what is needed. They have also been running a school wide nutrition program which provides apples to anyone in our school community who may be hungry.
In addition to our school council, we are proud to partner with the South West 40 Playground Society which is made up of parent and school staff whose sole purpose is to raise money to build a playground for our students. This community group meets following all school council meetings and is an actively involved in our school running fun lunches, school dances and other community events.
