About

John Davidson School is a PS-12 alternative program for Low German-speaking Mennonite children. The school teaches a full Alberta curriculum in English, in a setting that respects families' culture and language. In addition, students have a German and Bible-time class. The learning environment is sensitive to the LGM culture. For example, prayer is part of the day and Halloween is not celebrated. Our school also supports parents who may not speak English. We have a staff member who speaks Low German to assist with communication. Our Low German Mennonite School Liasion is Mr. Dan Doerksen and he can be reached at 403-715-4549.

Introduction

Welcome to John Davidson School!

Welcome Back! 

We are all extremely excited for the 2021/2022 school year and look forward to a successful year

John Davidson School will provide a genuinely supportive Christian learning environment where our Low German-Speaking Mennonite students experience academic success.

This year we have added an accredited high-school German program and Low-German singing instruction. 

We are also excited to announce an easing of the restrictions brought by COVID-19 this year so please reference our re-entry plan for information on these positive changes.

Student literacy will continue to be an academic priority as we prepare students for success in all instructional areas.
