Welcome to Lynnwood School! We are delighted that you are considering having your family as members of this great community of parents, students and staff.
We are an elementary school, conveniently located in the west end of Edmonton, just off 149th Street and the Whitemud Freeway. The school opened in 1959 and had an extensive modernization in 1999. Our school building is in excellent condition, offering bright, modern facilities for our students and staff.
Lynnwood School offers a regular elementary program, a district site for the Challenge Program (for gifted and talented learners), and a district site for the Community Learning Skills program (for students with moderate to severe cognitive delays). Because of this, Lynnwood School meets the educational needs of a very diverse student population of approximately 215 students from kindergarten to grade 6.
An active noon hour and after school co-curricular program provides opportunities for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom. Field trips and guest performers which support curriculum are provided through fundraising activities and from the school budget. School programs and activities include intramural sports, school choir, hand bells, AMA School Patrols, running teams, community service, a library program, a character education program (to promote positive citizenship), and a variety of lunch clubs.
Our goal, to challenge all students at a level appropriate to their readiness and ability within an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity, is advanced by working closely with parents as partners. Parents are actively involved with our School Council, as volunteers, and supporting classroom activities.
While our students achieve excellent results on Provincial Tests, our goal is to continue to emphasize student achievement in the core subjects. A safe and positive school climate for staff and students is a priority, and we rely upon, and value, the partnership of the home and the school. We work collaboratively with students and their families to provide the best educational experience and social opportunities possible.
