    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

Welcome to Kildare School.  At Kildare we offer two programs, a regular English and Chinese Bilingual Program, both from Kindergarten to Grade 6.  At Kildare we strive for excellence, we help students to reach their potential, discover their passions and accept their areas of growth. 

We want our students to be accountable for their actions, to build positive relationships with others and have some fun along the way!

Our staff support all learners and meet them where they are at academically and emotionally. Staff engage in an educational strength-based approach,  in collaboration to build and refine their teaching craft.  At Kildare we believe in the importance of working closely with parents to support our students, academically, socially and emotionally.  Together we are better!

I am very excited to be the Principal of Kildare!  I look forward to meeting and learning with this school community.  


Yours in Partnership,

Brenda Schmermund
