A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE IN ACADEMICS, ATHLETICS, & CITIZENSHIP
Jasper Place High School...Right Now!

                       Wow! It's hard to believe it's finally here...the time you've been waiting for...
                  you are entering high school!

                       This is such an exciting time in your life, as you are coming into a vibrant
                  school with the opportunity to experience academic success, make new friends,
                  and get involved in all the activities that a dynamic high school has to offer!

                       Jasper Place High School opened in 1961, and recently underwent a
                  modernization and upgrades in technology. That means there are large screen
                  monitors in every classroom, projectors and Smartboards being utilized for
                  presentations, more than 800 networked computers, and wireless access is
                  being installed for new laptops. We also have up-to-date labs and workshops,
                  so you will be able to utilize the latest in technology as you learn.

                      What does all this mean for you? Well, it means you will be in an environment
                  where you can interact and communicate with the world around you...one of the
                  advantages you will have by attending Jasper Place.

                       That is what we mean by the right place...right now!
You Have The Right Stuff!

                                                                                        
    Do you have what it takes to make it in high school? Of course you do!
Whether you have excelled in your course work or struggled through some
concepts, we have a program to assist you in being successful.

     Delivering an engaging and quality academic program is our first priority
at Jasper Place High School. We offer a full range of honours courses for our
Grade 10 students, and these lead to Advanced Placement and International
Baccalaureate course sequences in Grades 11 & 12. This change came about
based on student input, as AP & IB does not officially start in Grade 10, and
students wanted to experience the courses before they committed to a specific
program choice. Students also wanted to learn more about where the honours
programs can take them, so we have added presentations throughout the year
on university preparation, learner profiles, and career directions. We listen to
what you have to say!

       We also added an extra period to the school day. The Period 0 class is meant
to allow students to fit more courses into their schedule, as well as accommodate
students at a later start time. Having courses by request starting at 8 am (regular
courses start at 9 am) has allowed us to be flexible with student timetables while
still meeting curricular needs.

      Students also have the opportunity to participate in ACCESS, our newly
established program that offers tutoring help, off-campus learning courses, and
support for students that need extra assistance. This is in addition to the multitude
of other supports (Learning Resources Centre, Career Centre, STAR program)
offered at Jasper Place...the right place for you!

     We also emphasize that students should get involved in their school and
community. Some students accomplish this through our reputable athletic program,
made up of both clubs and teams to involve numerous students. Others participate
in our JP Student Leadership Team, one of the most comprehensive leadership
programs in the city, that involves hundreds of students throughout the year in
community events, school spirit activities, and global contributions. Check out
the back inside cover of this guide for more ways you can get involved. This is
how you make the right memories of high school!
So How Do You Choose The Right Program?


                                    At Jasper Place High School, we are serious about student success and are
                              committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support
                              high academic expectations and excellence in student achievement, behaviour
                              and citizenship. We believe that success is best achieved in an atmosphere of
                              mutual respect and trust, and we encourage a partnership amongst students,
                              staff, parents and community members to support academic learning, citizenship
                              skills and student responsibility.

                                    Your program selection should be based on your goals, capabilities, interests,
                              and achievements. If you change your mind as you progress through high school,
                              that's okay! We will work with you on making the necessary changes for you to
                              be successful.

                                    In this guide, you will discover program pathways, some that will lead you
                              towards university entrance, some towards college and technical schools, and
                              some that will support the transition of you going directly to work. Look at the charts
                              on each page to see where each course sequence leads to, and also glance at
                              the recommended mark for achieving success in the next level. You can record
                              your course choices on the flap on the back page of this booklet and get on the
                              right track as you plan your high school career. And remember, we are here to
                              help you make the right choice!

                                   Ultimately, you will need to make your course selections to meet the
                              requirements for a high school diploma.

Serious about Success
                                                                                                   
   We require that you take a full course load of 40 credits in Grade 10 (including
Physical Education 10 and possibly a Language Other than English), a full course
load in Grade 11 (including Career & Life Management), and leave some flexibility
in your Grade 12 year for additional course options.


     Now, you may have some questions about all of this, and that is why we
provided you with the flap on the outside cover of this guide. You can write down
your proposed course selections, share it with your parents, and check it with us
when you register. Basically, you get to fill in the blanks!

     Because Jasper Place High School works on a semester system, this means
you will have Semester 1 from September to January, and Semester 2 from
February to June. In each semester, you can take a maximum of 4 1/2 courses
(the 1/2 course being in Period 0 each semester).

      Here are a few other interesting aspects about courses at high school:
      1. Course Credits: Each course is assigned a credit value (usually 5
           credits) as determined by Alberta Education. To receive credits in a
           course, a student must achieve a mark of 50%. Credits can only be
           earned once in any course.
      2. Course recommendations/prerequisites: A grade of 50% must be
           obtained to proceed to the next course in the sequence. Most Grade
           11 and 12 courses require prerequisite courses.
      3. Course Sequence: Grade 10 courses begin with number "1" (Math
           Pure 10), Grade 11 courses begin with the number "2" (Math Pure 20),
           and Grade 12 courses begin with the number "3" (Math Pure 30).
      4. Exams: Any student who is enrolled in English 30-1 or 30-2, Mathematics
           Pure 30 or Applied 30, Social 30-1 or 30-2, Science 30, Biology 30,
           Chemistry 30 or Physics 30 must write a provincial diploma exam in
           that subject. The final mark will be a combination of the school mark
           (worth 50%) and the provincial exam mark (worth 50%). Provincial
           diploma exams are written in January and in June.
      Any student who is enrolled in Advanced Placement or International
Baccalaureate courses at the Grade 12 level will write international exams
in their subject area in May.

                                    veryone needs to know how to read and write, but English is so
                                    much more! English at Grade 10, 11, & 12 are required courses, and
                                    every student must complete English 30-1 or 30-2 to graduate. There
                                    are two basic goals of high school English language arts. One is to
                       encourage an understanding and appreciation of the significance and creativity
                        of literature. The second is to enable each student to understand and appreciate
                        language and to use it confidently and competently for a variety of purposes, with
                        a variety of audiences, and in a variety of situations for communication, personal
                        satisfaction and learning. The high school English language arts program has six
                        highlights—listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing and representing. Senior
                        high school students engage in all as they study texts and as they create their
ENGLISH                 own texts in relevant situations for a variety of purposes and audiences.
                               There are two main course sequences in English Language Arts:
                               English Language Arts 10-1, 20-1, & 30-1 is a course sequence that provides
                        an opportunity to study texts with an increased emphasis on critical analysis. Texts
                        studied are often literary in nature and relate to cultural and societal issues. The
                        courses focus on developing effective communication strategies and supporting
                        students in enhancing their skills for text study and text creation.
                        *	     Honours	English	10	–1	will	lead	to	English	20-1	AP	or	IB	and	English	30-1

                               English Language Arts 10-2, 20-2, & 30-2 is a course sequence that
                        provides for the study of texts at a variety of levels to meet the needs of students
                        who are more diverse in terms of aspirations and abilities. Texts studied often
                        have specific applications to careers or daily living. These courses are designed
                        for students to focus on developing effective communication strategies and
                        supporting students in skill development.
                                The two course sequences are similar in that they both maintain high
                        standards to meet graduation requirements, require that students write a diploma
                        examination upon completion of the 30 level course, and can be used toward the
                        application of the Alexander Rutherford Scholarships for High School Achievement.
                        The main differences between the two course sequences correspond to differences
                        in student needs, interests and aspirations. Not all post-secondary institutions
                        accept ELA 30-2 for entry. Students who plan to attend a post-secondary institution
                        need to familiarize themselves with the entry requirements of the institution and
                        the program they plan to enter.
                               An optional course linked with English is Film Studies.
                               Film Studies 15, 25, & 35 is a unique course offering at Jasper Place
                        High School, and we have been the only school approved in Alberta to present
                        it at an academic level. Students will concentrate on film & media history, the
                        study of genres and national cinema, and the cultural and critical contexts of
                        this art form. In the advanced course level, students will work on documentary
                        film scripts/editing/promotion for their portfolio, as well as develop their critical
                        viewing and creative skills.

                                    ocial is learning about the world around you, and what could be more
                                    relevant than that! Social Studies at Grade 10, 11, & 12 are essential
                                    courses, and every student must complete Social 30-1 or 30-2. The goal
                                    of the Social Studies program is to promote a sense of belonging and
10                      acceptance in students as they engage in active and responsible citizenship. At
                        the heart of Alberta’s social studies program are the concepts of citizenship and
                        identity in the Canadian context. It also includes multiple perspectives, including
                        Aboriginal and Francophone, that contribute to Canada’s identity. What’s more,
                        the program has a strong focus on Canadian and Alberta history, and students
                        will become involved in their own learning by asking questions, sharing ideas and
                        understandings, and working with others. Students are expected to bring their own
                        perspectives, cultures and experiences to the classroom, and construct meaning
                        in the context of their experiences with their school and community. Students are
                        also expected to empathize with the viewpoints and positions of others and create
SOCIAL STUDIES          new ways to solve problems.
                              There are two main course sequences in Social Studies:
                              Social Studies 10-1, 20-1 & 30-1 is a course sequence that will allow
                        students to examine the relationships among globalization, citizenship and
                        identity to enhance skills for citizenship in a globalizing world. In addition, they
                        will study the origins of nationalism and the influence of nationalism on regional,
                        international and global relations. Students will be given an opportunity to acquire
                        an understanding of world political and economic systems, the roles of individuals
                        and groups within these systems, and how these systems have struck a balance
                        between collective good and individual interest. Upon completion of the program,
                        students are expected to be able to understand consequences and alternative
                        choices in twentieth century global interactions.

                              Social Studies 10-2, 20-2 & 30-2 is a course sequence that will explore
                        historical aspects and the relationships among globalization, citizenship and
                        identity. They will develop personal and civic responses to emergent issues related
                        to nationalism. Students will be given an opportunity to acquire an understanding
                        of major political and economic ideas and systems so they can participate as
                        effective and responsible citizens. Upon completion of the program, students are
                        expected to be able to understand and appreciate how nations have sought to
                        protect and promote their national interests; how individuals and groups contribute
                        to, and are affected by, global interactions; and how these interactions have
                        consequences for their lives and the global community.
                              The two course series are similar in that they both maintain high standards to
                        meet graduation requirements, require that students write a diploma examination
                        upon completion of the 30 level course, and can be used toward the application
                        of the Alexander Rutherford Scholarships for High School Achievement. Although
                        the content, skills and attitudes are also similar for these two sequences, the
                        expectations for Social Studies 10–1, 20–1, & 30-1 are more challenging,
                        particularly in the depth of concept development, the level of critical thinking, and
                        issues focused skill development. The nature of the approved student resources
                        also differs for each sequence.

                                   he goal of mathematics is to prepare students to communicate and
                                   reason mathematically, use estimation and mental mathematics (where
                                   appropriate), reason and justify their thinking, select and use appropriate
                                   technologies as tools to solve problems, connect mathematical ideas
                      to other concepts in mathematics/everyday experiences/other subjects, and
                        appreciate and value mathematics as an integral component of society. An Alberta
                        High School diploma requires a minimum of ten credits (two 5-credit courses) in
                        approved mathematics coursework.
                              High school students can choose from several mathematics course sequences
                        depending on their preferred learning style and career goals.
                              Pure Mathematics 10, 20 & 30 emphasizes mathematical theory and
                        the use of algebra and graphing to solve problems. In Pure Mathematics, the
                        emphasis is placed on mathematical theory. The approaches used are primarily
                        algebraic and graphical; computational methods are used when the contexts
                        require them. Mathematics 31 is a highly advanced course designed for students
                        entering post-secondary programs that recommend or stipulate calculus as an
                        entrance requirement. It is desirable that students complete Pure Mathematics
MATHEMATICS             30 before taking Mathematics 31.

                              Applied Mathematics 10, 20 & 30 emphasizes the application of mathematics
                        and the use of numerical and geometric approaches to solve problems. In Applied
                        Mathematics emphasis is placed on applications of mathematics rather than
                        on precise mathematical theory. The approaches used are primarily numerical
                        and geometrical; algebraic and graphical methods are used when the contexts

                              Mathematics 14 & 24 is designed for students who wish to meet the
                        minimum mathematics requirements for a senior high school diploma. This
                        sequence is designed for students whose needs, interests and abilities focus on
                        basic mathematical understanding.
                              Completion of Applied Mathematics 30 or Pure Mathematics 30 requires the
                        writing of a provincial diploma examination. Each post-secondary institution has
                        its own entrance requirements that may change at any time. Information about
                        post-secondary institutions can be found through the Alberta Learning Information
                        Service (ALIS) Web site. http://www.alis.gov.ab.ca/main.asp
                              A graphing calculator is required for all Pure and Applied Mathematics
                        courses. Instruction will be provided on the Texas Instruments TI-83/84 series

                                   he goal of the senior high school science program is to help students
                                   gain the scientific understanding needed to be effective members of
                                   society. The components included are attitudes, scientific knowledge,
                                   mathematical/laboratory skills, critical thinking skills, and connections to
                      science, technology and society. Students are expected to be able to operate in
                        the framework of scientific inquiry as they develop their problem-solving abilities
                        and use technology appropriately. Learning opportunities are made meaningful
                        so students can relate science to their lives in and out of the classroom. This

                                    try to take a Language Other Than English in their high school program.
                                    Not only does this expose them to other cultures, but also opens up
                                    possibilities for travel, correspondence, and future careers. The objective
                      of the LOTE courses is to develop students who are sufficiently competent in the
                        target language so that they can function in the language and culture outside the
                        confines of the classroom. Learning another language also provides students
                        with the opportunity to meet the entrance requirements of many post-secondary
                        institutions in Alberta and across Canada, and it provides students with the
                        foundation that will allow them to consider opportunities for further studies abroad.

                                         courses and supports to assist students in being successful.

                                     Academic Alternative Grade 9 is a program for honours-level Grade 9
                                 students in a high school setting. Students take part in enriched Grade 9 courses
                                 in Math/Science/Language Arts/Social Studies, as well as Physical Education,
                                 a Computers class, and an option. Students also have the opportunity to take

                                       ACCESS is a Jasper Place designed program that allows students to shape
                                 their learning to their current needs with guidance from a school expert. This
                                 could mean a combination of correspondence courses together with regular
                                 classes, or it could mean a transition back into classes after a disruption. It also
                                 involves student tutoring, and diversifying the learning experience to best meet
                                 the needs of the individual while still working towards a high school diploma.
                                 Regular communication with teachers, students, and parents is to be anticipated,
                                 and student learning potential is uncovered.
                                 •     ACCESS Correspondence includes courses available to senior high
                                       school students that they can complete independently. They include the
                                       majority of Math, Science, English, and Social Studies courses, as well as
                                       a selection of CTS courses and CALM. Students must receive a referral
                                       from their assistant principal to participate in a correspondence course
                                       through ACCESS.
                                        ELL (English Language Learning)
                                       English Language Learning courses are offered to students whose primary
                                 languages are not English. While ELL students have much in common with other
                                 students, they often experience additional challenges when learning a new
                                 language and adapting to a new culture. The ELL program enables students to
                                 become more effective communicators through the study of English speaking,
                                 reading, writing, listening, and viewing. Students build the individual skills
                                 necessary for high school graduation requirements. A variety of teaching methods
                                 and resources are used in the ELL learning experience to improve these skills.
                                 All new ELL students are required to complete an English Language Learner
                                 assessment prior to enrolment at Jasper Place High School.

            International Students
           Jasper Place High School offers a welcoming, multicultural atmosphere to
     students from around the world. International students who attend our school
     and study in an English speaking environment enjoy a wide variety of program
     choices. Following their high school studies, many of these students choose                                                 
     to continue their education at universities in North America. Many are enrolled
     at JP to experience a Canadian learning environment and to become proficient
     in English. International students receive support while being integrated into
     mainstream programming and experience all that our high school has to offer.
     •     ELL Learning Strategies 15 is designed for International and ELL students
           preparing for post secondary studies. Although students will receive support
           in all subject areas through the use of instructional and learning strategies
           including effective writing, homework and study skills, self advocacy,
           organizational skills and time management, emphasis will be placed on test
           preparation for the writing of post secondary entrance exams (TOEFL). It
           is crucial that students in this course have strong English language support
           at home.
           Off-Campus Education is a partnership among schools, employers and
     students that supports and enhances student learning. The learning experiences

           spend part of their time in school and part of their time in industry as registered
           apprentices in one of Alberta’s 50 designated trades. Students enrolled in
           the Registered Apprenticeship Program are paid by their employers.
           Special Education
           Students with special education needs, including those with mild, moderate
     and severe disabilities, and those who are gifted and talented, require specialized
     learning opportunities in order to receive an education that is consistent with
     their identified learning needs. Most students with special education needs are
     placed in regular classrooms and are provided with programming, supports and
     services to meet their individual needs throughout the school day. All students
     with identified needs require an individualized program plan (IPP). An IPP is a
     plan of action with meaningful and measurable goals that identifies your specific
     strengths, needs and current level of performance. The IPP also explains what
     you will be learning and the strategies used to support your learning. Knowledge
     and Employability (K & E) are a series of courses rather than a program. K & E
     courses are designed for the student who learns best when the focus is on the
     development and application of reading, writing and mathematical literacy and
     when meaningful connections are made between the home, school, workplace
     and community through experiential learning experiences. Students who
     successfully complete Knowledge and Employability courses may qualify for a
     Certificate of High School Achievement. Students and parents receive assistance
     in registering for this program.
           PASS (Programming for Academic Student Success) is a Grade 10
     program primarily designed to advance students more than one grade level
     during the course of the school year. It is intended for students who have not
     successfully completed Grade 9, but have the potential to complete Grade 10.
     This fast-tracking series of courses allows students to effectively progress as
     they cover regular Grade 10 curriculum in core subjects, with supports through
     Learning Strategies and Reading courses. Applications will be available for
     students who make a commitment to this program.
     •      Learning Strategies 15, 25, & 35 is a sequence of courses available
           to students who need assistance in high school courses. Supports may
           include time management training, study skills, organizational development,
           and homework structure. Learning Strategies courses are open to any
           student.
     •      Reading 15 is designed to build reading skills, as success in reading
           comprehension is closely linked with high school success. It is only offered
           as part of the PASS program, and is part of the fast-track for students to
           complete Grade 10 in this program.

                         Career Directions/Transitions is a Jasper Place initiative that was developed
                  in response to student reactions that they needed more guidance in preparing
                  for life beyond high school. It is designed to assist individual students to meet
                  their growth and developmental needs—educational, personal, social and career
                  – as they discover their own learning style, aptitude of skills and talents, and
                  career potential. Students complete aspects of Career Directions/Transitions at
                  each grade level, and contribute to the portfolio they take with them at the end of
                  Grade 12. Try out www.careercruising.com with the user name: jasperplace and

Starting Off on the Right Track

      High School is a whole new experience, and when you are moving from a
comfortable junior high that you know into a large high school that is unfamiliar,
it can be an overwhelming experience! That is one of the reasons Jasper Place
offers so many ways for you to get involved in the school! We are known for our
athletics and student leadership programs, but you should be aware that there
are opportunities for every student to be connected with our school. You should
also know that the connections you make with clubs, teams, and student activities
will be the memories you have of your high school years! And one of the really
great things about our school is that there is a group that has the same interest
as you…and if there isn’t , then come and see us so we can start one!
      Here are some of the ways you can be involved in Jasper Place High
School:
Student Leadership
      The reality is one day students from JP are going to be in job interviews
where they are asked, "Why should we hire you?" or "What do you have to offer
our company?" They have a huge advantage if they can say that in high school
they were part of the Jasper Place Leadership Team and that in Grade 10 they
helped organize a community Halloween party and served as an ambassador
at the REB basketball tournament. In Grade 11 they may have helped with the
Salvation Army Operation Christmas Child Shoebox campaign and helped organize
a party at a local daycare. Then in Grade 12 they may have helped with Award's
Night and the annual book drive.
      Every student at JP is part of the Student Leadership program - they do not
have to sign up or join. It is a project based program and students are invited
to attend on a drop in basis around their schedules. Upcoming projects and
activities are discussed at each meeting and students can sign up to help out
on those activities that interest them. All students are encouraged to participate
in a minimum of TWO activities a year. This information should then be added
to a student's portfolio.
