Amisk School is a primary school with four single graded classes from grades ECS-3. We offer a full range of programs following the Alberta Learning curriculum. The teachers are supported by a number of teaching assistants, with everyone working to help students succeed. Programming is developed collaboratively, with an emphasis on early literacy and numeracy. Staff members are continually attending professional development activities to increase their knowledge and understanding of new curricula and programs. Students throughout the school enjoy physical education classes five times a week, as well as art, music and drama.
Why is the Amisk School often referred to as the A.P.P.L.E. Center? When the Amisk School was reconfigured in 2008 it was named the A.P.P.L.E. Center. A.P.P.L.E. Center is the acronym for the Amisk Public Primary Learning Environment. The A.P.P.L.E. Center is a primary school for students from Kindergarten to Grade 3.
Amisk School is located in the Village of Amisk - serving the communities of Amisk, Hughenden, Czar and Metiskow. Amisk boasts access to skating, curling, bowling, and golf facilities, libraries, a dance academy and 3 well maintained community halls. Nearby Shorncliff Lake Provincial Park offers the chance for recreational boating and swimming in the summer months, and is ideal for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and wildlife viewing in the winter time. The Village of Amisk has housing available at very reasonable rates and is a 15 minute drive to Hardisty (which is a central oil hub for many established oil companies) or a 30 minute drive to Wainwright.
