Avondale School is a diverse learning community in the heart of Grande Prairie. We currently serve approximately 170 students in Kindergarten to Grade 6. Our grade configuration this year consists of the following classes: a morning and an afternoon Kindergarten, two Grade 1, one Grade 2, one Grade 2/3, one Grade 3/4, one Grade 5, and one Grade 6.
At Avondale we are committed to providing optimal learning
experiences for all students in a safe, supportive, and inclusive environment.
Our vision is to engage and motivate students to take
ownership of their learning and to prepare them to become responsible citizens
in today’s society. In addition to
quality classroom instruction, our students are supported by a variety of
programs which include Reading Recovery, literacy intervention, social skills
groups, counselling and community partnerships. These partnerships include Frontier College (literacy support), Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and the Grande Prairie Centre for Newcomers.
We are committed to meeting the needs of all learners to ensure
that all children reach their individual potential.
