Queen Alexandra Middle School is a diverse community of learners who will be prepared to meet the academic challenges of the 21st century. All members will be empowered to be global citizens by thinking critically and acting collaboratively.
- The school serves approximately 400 diverse, largely inner-city students in Grades 6, 7 and 8. The largest self-identified groups include Caucasian, Indigenous, Latino/a, Black, Middle Eastern, and about half the population identifying as East Asian or South Asian.
- The staff is committed to building a strong partnership with students and parents in order to provide a productive, relevant learning environment which includes an extensive co-curricular program to engage.
An Extended French program is offered in Grades 6, 7 and 8 where students study half of their timetable in French (as well as a "late start" Extended French program that starts in Grade 7). A French Immersion planned to begin in 2024. There is an opportunity to continue in bilingual programs in secondary school.
A pilot of an Indigenous Language and Culture program will continue this school year.
There is a focus on inquiry-based learning, and community service. Indigenous Education and Equity issues are embedded throughout our curriculum.
