These numbers represent enrolment on September 30 as submitted to Alberta Education.

Program enrolment may not equal a school's total enrolment because:

  • students may be enrolled in more than one program, and
  • some programs are not shown.

Enrolment data gives parents a general understanding of the number of students at a school or enrolled in a program. Although we’ve made every reasonable effort to ensure the data is accurate, there may still be errors. To confirm enrolment, contact the school.

About Ekota School

Ekota School is an elementary school that focuses on developing strong reading and writing skills through Balanced Literacy. Our name, Ekota, is the Cree word for “the place to be.” We provide a Pre-Kindergarten program, the regular Kindergarten to Grade 6 program and Strategies. Students in Grades 4 to 6 receive French as a Second Language.

Students from communities other than Ekota School community are welcome to attend the Strategies program. The Ekota Before- and After-School Care program is in our school, and community sports programs such as indoor soccer use our gym in the evenings. Many community businesses and organizations support our school in various ways.

  • That with the shared commitment of students, parents and staff, we create a safe and caring community in which every student achieves superb results
