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. The IDEAS Lab, continues the great legacy of the Child Study Centre by embracing the educational pedagogy of the Project Approach, a variation of the project-based learning. 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 approaches 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.
