                             SUPERIOR
Guided by the principle that we were building a school that would provide for
our students and the community into the future, Superior Collegiate and
Vocational Institute stands proudly as our home.

The school is a testament to the vision of all the various groups who had input
into the building of the school. The staff, who were guided by the desire to
ensure a place that was welcoming and met the needs of students, put
thousands of hours into the details and the planning of this building. The
students, who were keenly aware that they were participating in creating a
legacy, were never hesitant to express themselves. The community, who
believed that the building was for all members of the community, gave the
needed viewpoint to make the building a centre for this community. The
architects and the builders who worked with us, demonstrated their desire to
build a truly functional and beautiful structure.

Superior Collegiate and Vocational Institute is the reflection of the desire and
vision of those involved in this process. Superior CVI is the home that the
family has built. It is the spirit of this family that emanates from the walls of
this school. It is with this spirit that we shall achieve the goal that was set at
the beginning of this process - building the future.

A learning environment rich in resources will prepare students for success in
any of the four pathways following completion of secondary school – the world
of work, apprenticeship, university and college.

Some of the features of Superior Collegiate & Vocational Institute include:

·          48 classrooms including technical and specialty classrooms

    Much care and attention was given to the moving and installation of the
    stained glass window that was originally located in the main entrance of
    Hillcrest High School. The stained glass, created by former Superior and
    Hillcrest teacher Catherine Forbes, now has a very well deserved place of
    prominence over the High Street entrance.

Second cooperative education experience
This course is a partnership between the school and the community. The intent of
Cooperative Education placement is to provide students with effective skills,
attitudes and work habits necessary to enter the work force and/or further
academic pursuits. Senior students may earn credits while working in a job that is
directly related to a senior course that the student is taking (or has taken recently.)
Students are not paid while at a Co-op placement. Students attend their
cooperative education placement in the morning or in the afternoon for one
semester to earn 2 credits. Students are monitored by the Co-op teacher.

     After an Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) identifies a student        625-1660
     as exceptional, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed and maintained for
     that student. An IEP may also be prepared for students who are receiving Special           Emergency Closure

     The IEP is based on analysis of the student’s strengths and areas of need. It will
     identify what the student is expected to learn and will explain how the Special
     Education program and services will help him or her achieve those learning goals
     and expectations. For those exceptional students who are 14 years of age or older,
     the IEP will also outline a coordinated plan for transition to post-secondary
     activities, including education, work or adaptation to community living. Further
     information can be obtained from the secondary school Student Services
