Thrive School Wraparound Services

On-site Family Resource Centre

Through our partnership with the Jasper Place Child and Family Resource Society, Thrive students and families have access to a variety of services that help support healthy students, families and communities. These include individual counselling, parenting programs and basic needs support. In addition to the many services provided in the school, the resource centre can also help connect students and families to additional services from qualified agencies and providers. If you are looking for support or have questions about what kind of wraparound services are available, please contact Andrea, Facilitator, Jasper Place Family Resource Center & West Edmonton Family Resource Network Hub at 780-489-2243 or by email at

School-Home Connection

Aiming to be much more than a school, Thrive works to build community by hosting family-friendly events and providing a welcoming place for parents and caregivers to connect -- with the school, with each other, and with helpful community services. Thrive also wants to empower families as partners in their child's education through free courses, resources, events, and activities. Be sure to check the school calendar for upcoming events.

Personal Opportunity Plans

Each student’s Thrive journey begins with screenings, assessments and information-gathering to help us better understand each student academically, socially, emotionally, and contextually. This also gives families a chance to share their own vision for the student. This information helps us build the Personal Opportunity Plan (POP), a personalized plan for every Thrive student that addresses their needs, gifts, and goals. Identifying barriers and strengths helps us determine what each student needs for support and enrichment.

Health and Wellness

Thrive provides a variety of programs and services to support holistic student wellness, from dental screenings to mental health supports. Check out our health and wellness page for more details.
