About Our School


​Queen Elizabeth School provides families with the benefits of a small school while living in the best city in Western Canada.

Our small school offers the benefits of being able to connect with all students in a deep, meaningful way. This translates into a strong sense of engagement with our staff and students, and there is no better place to learn than in a school that provides a family atmosphere. We build strong relationships with our students that model healthy lifestyles. This includes a grassroots program called Fresh Fruit Fridays — a day when a local business donates seasonal fruits and vegetables to our school. Every Friday, students and staff prepare and deliver fresh fruit to every classroom. What a great way to model healthy living!

Queen Elizabeth School is committed to providing a safe and caring environment that meets the needs of all students. Our kindergarten students attend half days, every day and benefit from a play-based, academically rich program. Students in grades 1 to 8 receive differentiated instruction, with First Nations and Métis ways of knowing woven into and across all Saskatchewan core curricula. Our students receive specialized instruction in physical and arts education from teacher specialists. Our grades 6 to 8 students welcome the opportunity to participate in our band program. 
We have an amazing number of programs available at our school, including:

We also offer athletics (e.g., basketball, volleyball, skating, cross country), student leadership council, book club, indoor recess on indoor days, spirit day, hot lunches, large school grounds with an outdoor rink, well-equipped gym and stage area, and a strongly supportive School Community Council​ and community association.​

​​A Parent Perspective

"When we first arrived in Saskatoon, we were looking for potential schools for our five-year-old son. We received a suggestion to register our son at Queen Elizabeth School because it was near our home. However, I told the lady that because I had done some online research and talked to several people, I had another school in mind —​one that was located near the university and was highly recommended by some friends because it had children from all over the world, as many parents attended the university. Furthermore, I told the lady that I had seen some pictures of Queen Elizabeth School on the internet, and because it appeared to be such a large school I was concerned with my son’s adaptation. The lady informed us that it was the opposite and suggested to us to pay Queen Elizabeth School a visit before making a final decision.

We must admit that we were pleasantly surprised from the moment we arrived at Queen Elizabeth School as we saw all the flags in the hallway and learned they represented the countries where the students came from. When we met the principal and the kindergarten teacher, and visited the classroom, we felt at home away from home. Needless to say, our son immediately fell in love with the classroom. So, after such a warm welcome, we decided there was no need to visit the other school. We filled out the paperwork and registered our son at Queen Elizabeth School.

As my wife volunteered at the school and got to meet and interact with the other teachers and staff on a daily basis, she further confirmed that we made the best choice for our son’s education. Now, as we are planning to move to a house, our top requirement is the neighborhood location, as we intend to keep our son at Queen Elizabeth School, where he is happy and receives a quality education."
