    School Profile

    Located in the Empire Park community, McKee School is named after George Albert McKee, a former Edmonton Public Schools Superintendent. It is our mission as professionals to inspire and instill successful learning for all students in a safe, respectful and culturally responsive environment.

    Our school shares property with the Duggan Health Office and Empire Park Community League. We are supported by the diversity and respect of the wonderful neighbourhoods that surround our school. We also benefit from the excellent support of our Friends of McKee Society who provide funding for many elements of our school and hold family oriented events at our school throughout the school year.

    McKee School offers kindergarten to grade 6 programming and we are a district site for students requiring the behaviour and learning assistance program. Our focus is on literacy across the curriculum and we are also a community of leaders that are developed through the PAX Good Behaviour Game (GBG), which creates a nurturing setting throughout the school and in every classroom. This is helpful for developing prosocial behaviours, citizenship and character development in our students. Our school also offers a number of programs to help students find success including daily reading and phonics awareness, Lucy Calkins writers workshop, and Response to Intervention (RTI).

    All of this helps us prepare our students for successful and healthy futures.

to McKee School!

Please note, McKee School is full in planned classes in Grade 1 to Grade 5 in the Regular program. We will now only accept resident students in Grade 1 to 5 who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. 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. Thank you for your understanding.


Our mission at McKee School is to inspire and instill successful learning for all in a safe, respectful, and culturally responsive environment. We actively seek to provide this environment for all children in our school.

McKee school provides a strong focus on literacy and Numeracy as part of our catchment goals. We have a shared belief that as a community of learners we support our students through the PAX Good Behaviour Game in all settings within the school. PAX allows the support in building and developing important prosocial behaviours which support citizenship and character development, which are essential for student success.

McKee is a Division site for the Behaviour and Learning Assistance (BLA) Program. Students supported through this program also receive opportunity for inclusion, Our belief is that all students are included and all staff share an equal role in facilitating this.

We encourage home and school connections and connections with the community as school is the hub. McKee school is a place where relationships are fostered, friendships are made, and inclusive instruction provides a foundation for positive learning experiences. We invite you to join us at McKee to be part of our school family.
