The Great Schools Of Ward G-King Edward School/The Academy At King Edward
September IIIrd, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Being a current candidate in this Ward G byelection, I am amazed at the rich history of fine schools in the ward. We start with King Edward School, now known as The Academy At King Edward as it has a multi-campus focus specializing in the learning needs of students from Grades 2-12.
- Led by its Principal, a Dr. Barb Bryson, King Edward focuses on providing a quality education to students with disabilities, a truly noble goal.
- Heavy involvement from the Parent Student Council really guarantees that each & every student is both educated & respected because of increased instruction time from their different teachers. Hey, when a parent's voice is heard, they are going to really appreciate being so involved in the lives of their kids on an educational basis.
- Grades 2-9 attend King Edward School itself while Grades 10-12 attend the Victoria School Campus location. So this change in venue gives the students the confidence they need upon entering the higher grades, as well as the courage to enter regular school classroom venues once they gain the strength of focus they need at King Edward itself.
