Our School

Located in the inner city community of Hillhurst, Queen Elizabeth School was built in 1957 and is situated on three acres with a large playing field and creative playground. We are located directly to the south of the junior-senior high school of the same name and enjoy a mutually positive relationship with the secondary school, which many of our students attend following grade six.

School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
