The Grande Prairie Public School District is a learning community in which every student succeeds.

Universal Guiding Principles

For everything we decide and do, we will hold ourselves accountable and we will ask:

  • Is it good for students?
  • Will it help build trust and good relationships?
  • Will it help us improve?
  • Is it a responsible thing to do?
  • Are we being open, honest and ethical?
  • Schools

    Currently the Grande Prairie Public School District is composed of 17 schools. In addition, a new K-8 school (Roy Bickell Public School) is currently under construction in the Royal Oaks neighbourhood. As the City of Grande Prairie continues to grow, the Grande Prairie Public School has been growing along with it, moving from 14 to 17 and soon 18 schools in the last 2 years.

    Attendance at GPPSD schools is determined by geographical attendance boundaries for all neighbourhood schools. A map showing attendance boundaries is available on the District website, here. Attendance at our specialized Schools of Choice is open to students who reside anywhere in the City.
