About Our School
Coronation School is a rural K-12 school situated in Coronation, Alberta which has a population of approximately 1,000. Coronation is approximately one hour straight east of Stettler and about 2 hours east of Red Deer on Highway 12. In addition to town students we also provide bussing for rural students and high school students from Brownfield. We have 293 students from ECS to Grade 12 attending Coronation School this school year, 2016/2017. There are 140 elementary students, 73 junior high school and 80 high school students. The Coronation School will endeavor to provide the best education possible, addressing the unique needs and characteristics of the young adolescent.
The goals of the school include the development of the full potential of each child. We facilitate this goal by offering the opportunity to participate in athletic and social activities which compliment the academic experience. Some of the extra curricular activities include badminton, basketball, volleyball, cross-country running, track and field, curling, and Yearbook.
The Coronation School has recently adopted a timetable to align with the schools within our school division. This alignment allows for VideoConferencing classes that enhances and broadens the education choices for our students. Our school is also proud of our library which is a resource center where students of all ages can access materials and computers, and use them for their courses. It facilitates a quiet environment for students to work independently. We also have four mobile Mac Labs which promotes computer use for both staff and students.
Our school is very proud of all of our staff and students, as their accomplishments are many.
