Designated a Provincial Historic Resource in 1976 and a Municipal Historic Resource in 2015, McKay Avenue School has played an important role in the educational, social and political development of Edmonton and Alberta. It has been preserved to reflect the District’s past and to pass its history on to future generations.
Housed within the oldest standing brick school in Alberta, our facility offers curriculum-based, hands-on programs for students; a museum highlighting the history of Edmonton Public Schools and Alberta's early political history; and archives where historically significant documents are preserved for future generations.
