Mill Creek School Replacement Project

BACKGROUND

On March 21, 2017, the Province of Alberta announced funding to build a replacement school for Mill Creek School

On May 10, 2017, we hosted a community visioning session where families and community members were invited to learn about the project and provide input on a vision for the future of Mill Creek School. We used the feedback to develop a possible concept for the school and presented the concept back to the community at a meeting on June 15, 2017. 

FLOOR AND SITE PLANS 

Thank you to everyone attended the meetings and provided input. We included many of your suggestions into our design, which was presented at a public meeting on September 21.

HIGHLIGHTS

Interior 

Some of the design highlights for the school’s interior include:

  • natural light in all occupied spaces
  • a larger gymnasium
  • large and flexible collaborative spaces for staff and students
  • a dance studio
  • a kitchen for community use 

Exterior 

Two notable changes for the school’s exterior include:

  • separate bus and parent drop-off areas to ease congestion
  • a plaza that will act as an outdoor learning space and host our annual Fiesta
