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 where students receive a strong academic education in a spiritually nurturing environment and French Immersion beginning Fall 2020.

Welcome to Queen Alexandra School, home of two alternative programs Logos Christian and French Immersion!
Beginning in September 2020, 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 and I am looking forward to using my French skills again. Prior to coming to Queen Alexandra School, I celebrated my 23 years of teaching experience in French Immersion programs ranging from Grades 2 through 8. I'm elated to be working collaboratively with new students and families to create a new program at Queen Alexandra.
Queen Alexandra School is a fantastic place to learn!
