2023/2024 School Year Information
For the 2023 - 2024 school year, S. Bruce Smith School is full in planned classes in Grades 7 to 9 in the regular program and Grades 7 to 9 in the Academic Enrichment program. We will no longer be accepting students in the Academic Enrichment program. For the regular program, we will now only accept resident students for Grades 7 to 9 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.
If you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.
Whether you are joining us this school year or considering us for the future, I would like you to know of two fundamental commitments we have in an effort to ensure our students succeed. The first is our commitment to the question, “What’s best for students?” It is this question that guides our work and our decision-making to support student success and well-being. Secondly, please know you are entering a school that values kindness and is committed to nurturing students so they grow not only as learners, but as confident, caring, capable individuals who embrace and value responsibility, diversity and kindness in a way that not only affords them individual success, but allows students the opportunities to learn in a safe environment.
Through its 31 years of serving students, SBS School has asked students and staff to STRIVE to be their best each and every day. To be stewards of the community, to value teamwork, embrace responsibility and demonstrate initiative, have vision and strive for excellence in everything we do. It is because of this commitment that our school is a special place. We are so very proud to challenge each day to carry on the values of our namesake, Mr. Sidney Bruce Smith who modelled integrity, excellence and the spirit of service and community.
Because of this history, its impact and its teaching, I am proud to be part of S. Bruce Smith School because I know this is a school that values kindness and is committed to nurturing students so they grow not only as learners, but as confident, caring, capable individuals who embrace and value responsibility, diversity and kindness in a way that not only affords them individual success, but allows students to become the leaders and mentors of tomorrow.
Together, we make each day the best it can be, celebrating our successes and lifting one another up because no one is alone at S. Bruce Smith. We are on this learning journey together and there is no doubt that together we can continue to help each other, reach our goals, be resilient and know that one another is cared for and capable each and every day. This is the spirit of S. Bruce Smith… an ongoing defining spirit of character, compassion and hope.
I look forward to the 2022-2023 school year, and I am excited and honoured to support the S. Bruce Smith community, its students and families.
Mr. Glen Wilcox
