About Grande Prairie

AboutGPBanner.png 

Grande Prairie Public School District is a publicly funded school district serving approximately 8,100 students in Kindergarten to Grade 12 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada since 1912.

 

With over 55,000 citizens, Grande Prairie is large enough to have all the services of a city but still small enough to provide that close community feel.

 

Visit the City of Grande Prairie website for more information on the region. 

Here's an online video tour book to check out more of what is available in Grande Prairie.

 

As the hub of the Peace River district, Grande Prairie has all the necessary shopping and entertainment venues as well as outstanding sports facilities. We note that Grande Prairie has a regional airport with easy connections to direct flights to Calgary, Edmonton, and Vancouver, and easy connections to the world. Our airport is serviced by Air Canada and WestJet airlines in addition to regional carriers.

 

The region is blessed with a strong economy with oil & gas, agriculture, and forestry supporting a strong service industry in the city. Recent additions to the community such as the Eastlink Center and the modernization of the Grande Prairie Public Library and Art Gallery, highlight the commitment of the city to provide its citizens with access to an outstanding lifestyle. Access to the Rocky Mountains and Jasper national park is just a short 3 hour drive south west through the beautiful Grande Cache wilderness area. Residents are actively involved in a wide range of camping, hiking, and outdoor activities as a result of this ready access in the region.

 

Graduates of Grande Prairie's high schools attend Universities across the entire country, with the University of Alberta in Edmonton the closest and largest recipient of our graduates. Along with many apprenticeship, certificate and diploma programs, Grande Prairie Regional College offers students several University Transfer options such as Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Science - Nursing, and Bachelor of Social Work.

 

The language of instruction and everyday use in the community is English.
