Our School

Simon Fraser School was built in 1964 and is situated on 3.8 acres. The school has 28 classrooms. We use both a Mac and PC computer format, with Mac labs, as well as several clusters throughout the school. We have a total of seven class sets of laptops as well as a set of iPads used within our wireless environment. Our Leaning Commons is exceptionally well stocked (literacy focus) with books and technology.

Mission Statement

To provide quality learning opportunities in the pursuit of excellence in citizenship, academics, fine and practical arts, and athletics. Our purpose is to work cooperatively and collaboratively with home, school and community, enabling our students to maximize their learning potential.

Who Was Simon Fraser?

Simon Fraser School was named for a fur trader and explorer who was born in 1776 and died in 1862. Simon Fraser was employed by the North West Company and in 1805 he was put in charge of the company's fur trading operations in central British Columbia. Between 1805 and 1807, Fraser built the first permanent settlement in British Columbia. Trying to find a safe canoe route to the Pacific, he and a party of 23 others set out in May 1808 to travel down the turbulent river which now bears his name. We are proud that Simon Fraser students show the same courage and spirit of adventure in pursuit of their goals.

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 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​.
