Parkside Montessori
Guiding a love for learning through child-directed, hands-on experiences!
Principal's Message


Dear Parents,


My name is Corrine Shmyruk and I am thrilled to to be a on a learning journey with you and your child(ren).   

At Parkside Montessori we have child-directed, individualized, hands-on learning within a Montessori prepared environment, rooted in the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori.  The intellectual and social development of the child will be met through a process of exploration and social development of the natural curiosity and love of learning.  We support and encourage growth in pursuit of excellence in meeting the outcomes identified in the Grande Prairie Public School District's Strategic Plan including Collaborative Practices, Quality Instruction, Effective Leadership and Purposeful Engagement.  I am confident that Parkside Montessori, being the only of its kind in Grande Prairie, sets a foundation that allows students to truly embrace the Montessori philosophy.


As a school leader, I passionately believe in the importance of education, the honor of being a leader, and the gift of having the opportunity to prepare students for success in the future.  We look forward to meeting your children and to partnering with you on this journey. 


Corrine Shmyruk
