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.
2022-2023 Registration Update
Garneau School is full in planned classes in Kindergarten to Grade 6 in the Sciences program. We will no longer be accepting students in this program. We are also full in planned classes in Grade 1 in the Regular Program. We will now only accept resident students in Grade 1 in the Regular program who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area (and the McKernan attendance area) for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

2022-2023 Registration Information
REGISTRATION FOR NEW STUDENTS (Starts February 1)
Students who are new to Edmonton Public Schools, such as Kindergarten students, can click here to register for the 2022–23 school year starting on February 1. You can register at any of our schools throughout the year, but applying after April 14, 2022 may limit your options.
PRE-ENROLMENT FOR CURRENT STUDENTS (Starts March 8)
Students who already attend a Division school can pre-enrol next month. Sign in to SchoolZone between Tuesday, March 8 at 9 a.m. and April 14 at 4 p.m. to select your preferred school for 2022-23.
IMPORTANT: Registration and pre-enrolment are not first-come, first-served, so take time to research your options and find the school and program that work best for your family.
ONLINE LEARNING FOR 2022-2023 AT ARGYLL CENTRE
Families of Grade 1–12 students who would like their child to learn online in 2022–23 can register or pre-enrol at Argyll Centre. Online learning will no longer be available at other Division schools.
Argyll Centre’s live online teacher instruction is similar to the online learning format that was offered at all schools this past year. However, there are limited programming options through Argyll Centre. Families interested in Argyll Centre can contact the school for details about their programming and learning options.
Families who pre-enrol at Argyll Centre will not be connected to their current or designated school and may not be guaranteed a space there for the 2023–24 school year.
Kindergarten programming will be available in person for the 2022–23 school year.
Families who decide not to send their child to Kindergarten can still register them for Grade 1 the following year. Kindergarten programming is optional for families in Alberta.
As vaccination rates among children continue to climb, we look forward to having students learn in person this fall. We will continue to follow public health guidance and adjust to help keep students and staff as safe as possible during the 2022–23 school year.
