Joseph M. Demko School
We are excited to be in the design stages for Joseph M. Demko School, named after a former St. Albert Public Schools teacher, administrator, superintendent and trustee.
When will the school open?
Originally scheduled to open for September 2018, construction delays make this unlikely. Instead, we are planning for either a mid-year opening in the 2018-2019 school year, or a September 2019 opening.
What are the options if the school opens mid-year?
As we did when we were opening Lois E. Hole School, we will consider the following possibilities:
- a mid-year move where some or all of the children would start classes at their current schools and move over part-way during the year; or
- wait and move all of the children at the beginning of the following school year.
What grades will the school serve?
The school will serve students in Kindergarten - Grade 9. It has a capacity of 900 students, which, when full, will make it the third largest school in St. Albert in terms of student population.
What programs will the school offer?
The school will offer English and Logos Christian programs. It will have a full complement of Career and Technology Studies (CTS) programs for our junior high students.
What areas will the school serve?
The school will welcome students in the Logos Christian program from throughout the city. The boundaries for the English program have not yet been set.
Where is the school located?
The school is located in Jensen Lakes.
