Open House February 25, 2020
At Garneau school we recognize that each child has an innate capacity from which to grow. Learning is inspired through nurturing authentic relationships with people, community, the natural world, and ideas. We are dedicated to cultivating meaningful and innovative learning, and fostering academic integrity.
Garneau (Regular) Program
Garneau School’s kindergarten to grade six program supports in-depth learning focused on 21st century knowledge, skills and attitudes. Students learn competencies such as collaboration, creativity and communication through an inquiry and project approach to learning. Literacy and numeracy are central to instruction in all classes. Our Garneau program provides children with meaningful opportunities to be active participants in their learning.
The IDEAS (Inquiry, Design, Environment, Arts, and Sciences) Lab is part of EPSB's Sciences program. It is a grade K to 6 program that provides an environment for in-depth learning focused on 21st century knowledge, skills and attitudes. Methods informing the IDEAS Lab instruction are project approach and inquiry-based strategies. Through this approach to learning, competencies such as collaboration, creativity and communication are developed. The IDEAS Lab is grounded in an educational philosophy which is a distinctive feature of the culture and style of instruction:

The IDEAS Lab is organized in combined grade groupings providing many benefits to students including strong opportunities for collaboration and leadership.

Garneau School is a welcoming school community that is home to two programs, the Garneau (Community) program, and the IDEAS (Inquiry, Design, Environment, Arts and Science) Lab, which is part of the EPSB Sciences program. Both programs deliver the mandated Alberta Programs of Study through rich educational experiences for all children. Students from both programs come from a variety of backgrounds and communities, as they join to form the learning community at Garneau School. Our parents value the family atmosphere, quality education, cultural diversity and collaborative approach to learning.
Our learning community is diverse, and the uniqueness of each member is celebrated. We have several regular school-wide events; Terry Fox Run, Harvest Ball-O-Fun, Winter Concert, and Pancake Breakfasts. Students, parents and staff work together to create a warm and welcoming learning environment.
Welcome to Garneau School.
At Garneau School our classrooms and school learning spaces are flexible and engaging. Students access technology to interact with the world around them and support inquiry and investigation. Our learning spaces reflect our belief in communication and collaboration with each other, the community and world around us. We believe learning is active and interactive.
Children’s investigations frequently take them outside the school building and into the surrounding neighborhood. Garneau School is ideally situated to encourage first hand investigations of the program of studies with easy access to Edmonton’s River Valley, University of Alberta, Parliament Building, unique local businesses, and the LRT connecting us to the city core.
These are exciting times at Garneau School, we will be celebrating the conclusion of the Child Study Centre and preparing for the transition to the inquiry based Science Alternative program for the fall of 2019. We value relationships and rely on collaboration from all our partners; including students, parents, staff and community members. We honour student voice, as children are actively involved and engaged in their learning, and parent voice as we work together to create learning opportunities that are valuable to each child.
Yours in partnership,
Jon Paul Cooper, Principal
Garneau School, Inspiring Curiosity
