We began a conversation in 2014 with parents and community members in the broader Highlands area to talk about the possibility of a replacement or modernized school in the area. We proposed options and asked for feedback about what the community would like to see.
In spring 2017, the provincial government announced funding for a major modernization at Highlands School. This new design will also see Highlands School become a K-9 school and welcome students from Mount Royal and Montrose schools, which will close once the project is complete.
We also held community visioning workshops during the 2017-18 school year to develop a community-driven plan for the design. We used your feedback from the workshops to inform the design.
Thanks to everyone who came to see our booth at the City of Edmonton's information night on September 27. Families had the opportunity to see the design process, ask questions and learn about other community projects in the area. We'll share more information about construction updates and future information evenings.
