School Profile

Allendale's History

Did you know that Allendale School has been serving South Edmonton children since 1913?  During that time, parents, community, and staff have energetically worked together to provide a caring and responsive environment in which thousands of students have learned and achieved a great deal.

The original Allendale School, a two-storey wooden structure, was built on a former farm property purchased from the Allen family.  This original school served as an elementary school until 1949 when the first phase of the existing school was built.  It wasn't until 1956 that the junior high wing was added.  To cope with an increasing enrolment, a second wing was added in 1970.  Indeed Allendale has a rich past, a meaningful present, and a promising future!

Allendale School, in partnership with students, parents, and the community, exists to develop life-long learners who strive for personal and academic excellence.
