    Welcome

    Gold Bar School is located in Southeast Edmonton, just blocks from the North Saskatchewan River Valley. It serves elementary students from the Gold Bar neighbourhood, many who are children of Gold Bar alumni who have moved back to the neighborhood to be members of a community committed to strong family values and caring for your neighbour. Many of our students begin in kindergarten and continue at Gold Bar through to the end of grade six. Within walking distance, River Valley Townhomes provide affordable housing for many of our families. Gold Bar School leases space to, and is committed to strengthening collaborative relationships with Gold Bar Day Care and Gold Bar Preschool and the many other community relationships that are of benefit to our students.

    We provide a diverse range of extra-curricular acitivites and clubs for students in order to enhance their citizenship and character qualities.  Students are held accountable to our TEAMS expectations:

    Think and act safely 

    Encourage and support others

    Always try your best 

    Make good choices 

    Show respect by helping, sharing and caring for others.  

    Our school community of staff, students, and parents work in a strong partnership to provide challenging learning experiences that help all our students achieve to their highest level.  We have created a welcoming and supportive learning environment that one feels immediately upon entering our doors.

    School Philosophy

    Gold Bar School is a community that provides a rich learning environment where students are active citizens who are encouraged and supported as they engage in their journey as lifelong learners.  We believe that each of our learners is unique and has diverse strengths, interests and needs which are valued and nurtured, and in so doing, each child will be prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century.  We believe strong communities are built through clear and open communication with parents, students and staff and thereby foster safe and secure learning environments for every child to realize their potential.  We believe in empowering our students by celebrating their successes, and by using restorative practices which seek to repair relationships that have been damaged, so that every voice is heard, valued and acknowledged.  We believe every child has the right and the responsibility to belong to our many communities and that each child has gifts that contribute to and enhance these communities, both within and beyond the walls of the school.  We believe success is different for every child and includes processes as well as the product, beyond academics, including social relationships, community building and citizenship.  We believe students will be engaged in leadership roles as they navigate their lifelong learning journey.
