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!

School Mission Statement

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

Respectful Learning and Working Environments

Edmonton Public Schools, in co-operation with its staff groups, is committed to creating a healthy, respectful learning environment for students, staff members, trustees, parents, volunteers and contractors.

We recognize the worth of every person without discrimination. We are committed to working toward the elimination of objectionable behaviour in our schools and workplaces, and to maintaining an environment that is respectful, safe, nurturing and positive for everyone.

Please help us achieve this goal by interacting in a manner which respects the dignity and value of others.


Scent Sensitive School – we have staff and students where scented products can aggravate health problems (asthma, allergies or medical conditions) so please be AIR AWARE and mindful and don’t wear scented products. Thank you!  

Nut Aware School - In order to provide a safe learning environment for our students with nut allergies we are raising awareness of all members of our school community regarding severe allergies. Our school acknowledges that due to food processing practices it is impractical to eliminate nuts or nut products entirely from an environment where there is food.

As a Nut “Aware” School we ask that:

  • Parents and caregivers being encouraged NOT to send food to school with their child that contains nuts (especially peanuts). This includes peanut paste, Nutella, nut butters, all nuts and cooking oil containing peanut oil, as well as foods containing nuts.
  • No nut products be included in food on special food days i.e. cakes, or in any cooking activities at school or on school camps.
  • Students being encouraged NOT to share food.
  • Students being encouraged to wash hands before and after eating.
Thank you for helping us in respecting the needs of students with allergies attending our school.
