We've divided the map of Edmonton into geographic areas. Click on the map to zoom in and display all schools in that area.

Schools are represented by coloured pins. A key below the map shows the type of school represented by each pin.

Sometimes the pin will drop into the wrong location, especially for residences in new or growing communities. If this happens, click and drag the pin to the right location to find the designated school, You can report a wrong address location to Google Maps.

Scroll down to find a list of schools currently shown on the map, starting with your designated school if you have submitted an address. Zoom out on the map to view more results.

Different ways to Search

Search By Your Address

Enter your home address to zoom in on the map and locate your designated elementary, junior high and senior high school indicated by the apple pin.

Designated schools

Every home address in Edmonton has a designated public school, but it isn't always the school closest to your home. Students can attend their designated school, however, if that school uses a lottery process, some students may not be able to attend that school. 

Students can alternately choose to attend any other Division school, as long as:

  • the school has available space
  • the student meets any entrance criteria of that school

Search By Program

Curriculum and programming options

Each grade has a curriculum determined by Alberta Education. Curriculum is what students learn in each subject area. Each of our schools teaches the curriculum through one, or a combination, of the following types of programming.

  • Regular programming:
    Most schools offer regular programming, but no two schools offer it in the exact same way. All curriculum is determined by Alberta Education, but a school’s focus, optional courses and activities will vary depending on how it is organized to meet student needs.
  • Alternative programming:
    The Division offers more than 30 alternative programming options. Students enrolled in alternative programming will receive instruction determined by Alberta Education, with a focus on arts, athletics, language and culture, faith or teaching philosophy.
  • Special education programming:
    Students enrolled in special education programming will receive instruction determined by Alberta Education, as well as specialized supports based on their needs and abilities.

What is a school open house?

Open houses are informal events hosted by schools to give you and your family an opportunity to:
  • tour the school
  • meet school staff and teachers
  • talk with current students and other parents
  • learn more about the programming and the school’s approach to education
  • understand what your child will learn and how you can provide support
  • learn about registration.

Find out how to prepare to attend an open house.

When can I attend an open house?

Schools host open house events between early February and mid-March each year.

Not all schools host open house events. If you're interested in learning more about a school that is not hosting an open house, contact the school to schedule an appointment.
