The Lloydminster Public School division is a complex organization in that it is both a Saskatchewan and Alberta school division. Lloydminster, located halfway between Edmonton, AB and Saskatoon, SK on Hwy 16, has a growing population of approximately 40.000 residents. Many characterize Lloydminster as a growing city, with a small town feel.
The division follows the Saskatchewan curriculum set out by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education, while also receiving funding from Alberta Education to support a number of student learning and facility initiatives. This comprehensive environment creates an opportunity for the Division to simultaneously assemble the best from two provinces.
Our school division has five elementary schools, one Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 9 school, two middle schools, one high school and one outreach school. All of our schools offer students a well-rounded education based on curricula provided by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education. Students who attend our schools not only receive excellent curricular instruction but also benefit from extensive co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.
