These numbers represent enrolment on September 30 as submitted to Alberta Education.

Program enrolment may not equal a school's total enrolment because:

  • students may be enrolled in more than one program, and
  • some programs are not shown.

Enrolment data gives parents a general understanding of the number of students at a school or enrolled in a program. Although we’ve made every reasonable effort to ensure the data is accurate, there may still be errors. To confirm enrolment, contact the school.

About Athlone School

Athlone School is committed to delivering strong academic programs in a supportive, nurturing and safe environment. Our school staff has engaged in targeted professional development in trauma-informed care, building healthy attachments, mindfulness and brain health. Our instructional focus is on literacy across the curriculum. Teachers continue to develop their teaching practices in the 5 Pillars of Reading as we continue to collaborate with the University of Alberta’s Reading Research Laboratory director and professor, Dr. George Georgiou.  

At Athlone School, we provide evidence-based practices and intensive intervention for struggling readers. We offer Full-day Kindergarten programming, and our Behaviour and Learning Assistance program is for students requiring additional support with emotional-regulation strategies and executive functioning skills. Teachers and educational assistants in this program have specialized training to help students improve emotional regulation and engagement, so kids can succeed in their academic pursuits and their relationships.

We serve the communities of Athlone and Dunvegan, and our school is part of the Ross Sheppard Catchment. Collaboration with our Ross Shep colleagues builds a unified community where quality learning comes first. We work together to foster resiliency and success for all learners, as we build accountability, and increase equity and integrity. As an APPLE (Alberta Project Promoting Active Living & Healthy Eating), we work with parents and partners to prepare students for successful and healthy futures. We receive excellent support from, and highly value, our Parent Support Association and community partners.


We believe:

  • That our focus on evidence-based instruction in all subject areas provides a strong foundation for student growth and achievement
  • That success in school is a working partnership between students, staff, parents and the community
  • That using school-wide best practices to continuously enhance students’ social, emotional and academic skill sets directly impact progress and development throughout their K-12 education and beyond
