Historic Queen Alexandra School, located in the heart of Old Strathcona, promotes a rich educational experience for children and continuous professional growth for teachers. We are located just a few blocks away from the University of Alberta. Students come from a variety of communities in south west Edmonton. We are a close-knit community that supports whole student learning.
Queen Alexandra offers two alternative programs: Logos Christian Program and French Immersion programming.
Our three virtual Open Houses have concluded. If you were not able to attend our Open Houses, we invite you to view our slide show and meet with our Principal to learn about our school and our programs and answer any questions you might have. Our school is currently closed for the summer break and requests to meet with the Principal will resume once the office reopens on August 24th.

Welcome to Queen Alexandra School, home of two alternative programs - Logos Christian and French Immersion!
Beginning in September 2021, our school will be offering the French Immersion Program for Kindergarten and Grade 1. As the first group of students moves into the next grade, we will expand the Program by one grade level until we reach Grade 6.
Our staff, student and parent communities are excited about the new programming. We look forward to co-creating the future of Queen Alexandra School with our new students and their families.
Queen Alexandra School fosters high academic learning through excellence in teaching and commitment for the growth of each student as they excel socially, academically and physically.
Our school focuses on the importance of teaching children how to become optimal learners. We learn about the brain, self-regulation and use the MindUp program to provide skills and strategies for student learning. We are committed to creating a thriving, dynamic and inspiring educational environment that produces self-directed learners to confidently prepare them for the 21st century.
In collaboration with parents and our community partners, students maximize their potential by being supported through differentiated programming and developing behaviours necessary for their success in school and their chosen career pathway.
The Logos Christian Program allows students to develop academic skills while integrating biblical principles into all areas of study. It provides an opportunity for students to live out Christian values, morals and beliefs in supportive and nurturing environments. The Logos Christian Program is a non-denominational faith-based program welcoming all families and religions.
The French Immersion Alternative Program is one I know well. Prior to coming to Queen Alexandra School, I celebrated 23 years of teaching experience in French Immersion. French Immersion is a program of choice that begins in Kindergarten or Grade 1 and continues to Grade 12. In this program, French is the language of instruction for core subjects.
I'm elated to be working collaboratively with our Logos Christian and French Immersion families. We look forward to welcoming new families to both alternative programs. Queen Alexandra School is a fantastic place to learn!
Principal Charlene Howard B.A. M.Ed.
