Our School

Mount Albion is a Public School with classes from JK – Grade 8. In 1877 a school was built on this site and was replaced in 1952. We have had several additions over the years including three brand new kindergarten classrooms just opened in 2012 and besides our main structure we have ten classrooms that are located within two port-a-paks that are completely joined on to the main building.  We are one of five feeder elementary schools for Saltfleet High School.

Most of our students walk from the surrounding suburbs and we have an active partnership with nearby daycare facilities. We are unique in the fact that we are situated on seven acres of property which has a large playground area including a Habitat, two baseball diamonds, a soccer field (currently under repair), and two basketball courts.

We are active in many sports, the arts and other extra curricular activities including checkers.  We are also involved in many new initiatives with Saltfleet High School.
