Our Lady of the Assumption School, built in 1956, has a long history of serving the children of southeast Lethbridge. We are a small school of about 220 students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 6 with approximately thirty staff. Bussing is provided for children living 1.2 kilometers from the school. Many of our children stay for lunch during which time choir and intramural activities are offered. Our Lady of the Assumption learning community is dedicated to providing a strong academic and cocurricular program in a Christ centred learning environment.
Our Lady of the Assumption School has a long-standing reputation as a Catholic community school which provides educational services to children living in southeast Lethbridge. Our mission is to educate each student spiritually, academically, socially, and physically while respecting the needs and uniqueness of each individual. We do this in partnership with the home, parish and community. Most important for our staff is to provide a safe and caring environment for all of the children enrolled.
The school has a history of having strong family and community bonds. We encourage parents to continue that partnership through participation in School Council, field trips, and special events. Strong parental support and committed staff provide us with the opportunity to offer Grade 6 Outdoor Education, extra-curricular basketball, and exceptional educational field trips.
As members of Holy Spirit Catholic School District #4, the majority of our students move on to Grade 7 at St. Francis Junior High School and then Catholic Central High School for Grades 10, 11, and 12.
