    School Profile

    Kildare School is an elementary school located in northeast Edmonton which has been in operation since 1968. The school has a tradition of excellence in all areas of learning and it is a pleasure to welcome you as a member of our school population. Kildare School provides programming for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6.

    The school serves a broad range of students needs and is a designated site for a Chinese Mandarin Bilingual Program as well as an English Core Program. Kildare's attendance area for the Bilingual Program (K to 6) is east of 82nd Street and north of the North Saskatchewan River. However, only students living on the north side of the river and east of Wayne Gretzky Drive are eligible for school bus transportation to Kildare School.

    Successful operation of a school requires the cooperation and understanding of everyone concerned: teachers, students, and parents. As citizens of Kildare School, students will face both the problems and benefits of life in a small community. Each of us is responsible for doing our part to make it the type of community in which we can live and work together in harmony. We must learn to respect the strengths and weaknesses of others, to communicate our wishes and intentions to each other and to carry out our responsibilities by doing our tasks to the best of our abilities.

Principal's Message

Kildare school is a place staff and students are excited to call home during the day.  Over 80% of our students study in our Chinese Bilingual program, creating extensive opportunities for all Kildare students to learn about Chinese culture and language.  Together we strive for excellence in learning, working with a very supportive, committed parent group as well as community partners like Londonderry Junior High, M. E. LaZerte, Confucius Institute, and the Edmonton Chinese Bilingual Education Association to create optimal learning environments for our kids.   Our staff engages in student focused collaboration and is committed to using effective teaching practices, common assessments and schoolwide interventions to support learning gaps in literacy.  We are proud of our students – their commitment to excel in their studies, their desire to make a difference in the world, and their compassion for one another.
