    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!  Our staff is a group of dedicated and caring professionals, each with their own set of unique talents and skills.  Our students also have an amazing set of talents and skills.  Working together, along with families, we create a positive school climate where everyone feels safe and each individual is respected.  Our school has a strong history of guiding students to achieve their best academically, socially, emotionally, mentally, and physically.  Teachers work with students daily to help them to develop the skills, knowledge, and positive attitudes necessary to become responsible, respectful, caring, and contributing citizens.

Success, one student at a time - this is foundational belief at Edmonton Public Schools.  At Kildare, we know that success looks different for each individual. We know that students work differently.  We know that students demonstrate mastery of the curriculum in many different ways.  We know that excellent assessment practices and allowing for differences will create a robust and resilient individual. We know that students need to try learning in many ways.  We know they will eventually succeed.  Trying a different method, taking a risk, failing often then pivoting to make new connections and new meaning - that is at the heart of learning!  Achievement is much, much more than a score on any single test.

This year, we will face many challenges.  The unknown may be difficult to face. Collaboration makes daunting challenges much easier to take on.  I know that we, as a group, will foster growth and success for every student in our community.  We are all up for the challenge!

Here’s to a great year!
