Welcome to Elmwood School! We are a diverse school that offers three excellent programming options: STEM (Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), Individual Support Program, and Chinese Bilingual. It is important to note that Elmwood School is not a community school and only offers Alternative or Special Education programming options.
We are proud to be the first elementary school in Edmonton Public to offer the STEM Program for the upcoming school year! This is a shift from the Sciences program that Elmwood has provided for many years however we feel that this is simply an evolution of the work that we already do with the students and school community. The STEM program supports students in learning with a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Students will learn to research and solve real-world problems in innovative ways, and gain a deeper understanding of each of the STEM fields and how they work together.
We are very excited to continue to grow our Chinese Bilingual Program at Elmwood School and will be accepting registrations for Kindergarten and Grade 1 for the 2023/24 school year. The program is designed to provide children an opportunity to learn the Chinese language, in addition to the regular curriculum, and to experience the richness of both western and eastern cultures. Please contact the school office for information about registering for this school year.
Elmwood School also offers an Individual Support Program that supports students with severe to profound developmental disabilities in grades 1-6. Elmwood's inclusive school community provides numerous opportunities for all students to interact with one another - through classroom activities, buddy groups, school-wide assemblies, and special events.
We have a large transportation zone to support our Programs of Choice so please feel free to reach out to the school to find out if you are able to access bussing for your child. Additionally, Elmwood Out-of-School Care is housed in Elmwood School if you require support with child care after the school day is done.
Elmwood School is an exciting place to be! We look forward to learning with you and your child.
