Thank you for visiting John A. McDougall School's home website. We are so pleased to welcome all our new and returning families to John A. McDougall School this year. We are very proud of our students, families and staff at John A. McDougall and welcome the opportunity to share our school with you. 

Literacy is a strong focus at John A. McDougall School. It is our goal to ensure that all students have 21st century literacy skills that will enable them to have a successful future with many choices open to them. We want students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, collaborative team members, excellent communicators and digital learners. Along with a strong focus on academics, student learning is enriched through many field trips, hands on activities and special events such as artists-in-residence, author visits and cultural and theatrical performances. 

At John A. McDougall School we have many community partners. Our All in for Youth team consists of a Family Therapist, Roots and Wings worker, Big Brothers Big Sisters Coordinator and access to a school nurse and nutritionist. Students receive a daily snack and lunch. We have a number of school wide events and after school programs made possible through our partnerships with All in For Youth and Alberta Immigrant Women and Children Centre

John A. McDougall is a Kindergarten to grade six school located an area close to the city center. Our school is a multicultural hub with majority of students coming to us with a variety of languages.
