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 Velma E. Baker School

At Velma E. Baker School, we provide students in Kindergarten to Grade 6 with an inspiring, inclusive learning environment that respects diversity and understands that students learn in unique ways. Through our Character Education program, students become resilient, lifelong learners as they build connections to our school, our families and our community.

Our goal is to provide exceptional learning opportunities for all students. French as a Second Language is taught in Grades 4 to 6 and a music specialist engages our students with instruments and choir. We value the arts and the opportunities they provide for our students.

Velma E. Baker benefits from an active school council and parent association, which supports our school in building strong connections with our families and community.

  • In helping students grow and succeed as critical, creative thinkers and as global citizens and leaders
  • That we all learn in unique ways and can come together to embrace our differences
  • In providing quality learning experiences for all students, enabling them to be successful and to contribute to their community
  • In respect, intergrity, caring, purpose and celebrating the joy in our work and the learning of our students
