    School Profile

    Westminster School is located in the community of Glenora. We welcome students from our direct feeder schools - Glenora, Coronation, Grovenor, Westglen and Oliver. We excel at combining academics, arts, athletics and real life experiences for our students and as a result, we also welcome Grade Seven to Nine students from all over the City of Edmonton in the delivery of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP), in which our Regular Program, and two District Special Needs Programs - Strategies and Behaviour Learning Assistance reside.

    Westminster exists to create a safe space for students to find out who they are and flourish into who they are meant to be. We provide rich and fulfilling experiences for students, coupled with academic discipline and community involvement. Students leave Westminster feeling challenged, respected and valued, and confident.

    We are Inclusive. Everyone belongs. Everyone is valued.

    We Build Character. Kind, compassionate, and empathetic students.

    We look Beyond Schooling. We educate whole, well-rounded students through a multitude of opportunities and rich experiences.

    We have Fun. There is an element of delight in all that we do.

    We are Community - Centred. Inside and outside of Westminster, we focus on building a better world. 

    At Westminster, we are big believers in giving back. Not only is SERVICE a part of who we are, it's part of the core building blocks of the IBMYP.  Every year, our students collectively commit to over 5,500 hours of volunteering. We wholeheartedly believe service helps develop well-rounded students, and establishes a fundamental principle of giving those who need our support. 

    During the 2019/2020 school year, Westminster was chosen as one of four schools in the Edmonton area to compete in the Hockey Helps Kids challenge, hosted by the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation. Our Westminster Warriors chose to support Little Warriors, a local charity focused on the awareness, prevention, and treatment of child sexual abuse. As a result of this opportunity, Westminster has developed a strong relationship with Little Warriors and going forward, we continue to have our Warriors helping Warriors, with Little Warriors and the The Be Brave Ranch as our school's Charity of Choice.

Full In Planned Classes

For the 2024 - 2025 school year, with the exception of Grade 9 in both the regular and International Baccalaureate programs, Westminster School is full in planned classes. We will no longer accept enrolment requests for Grades 7 and 8 in the International Baccalaureate program. For the regular program, we will now only accept resident students for Grades 7 and 8 whose parent(s)/legal guardian(s) have newly moved into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

Principal's Message

Hello Future Warrior! 

Welcome to Westminster Junior High School, located in the heart of the beautiful Glenora community.  Westmin’ is a school with a long history of academic excellence, athletic achievement and community service. We are one of only two public junior high schools in Edmonton that offers the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP). At Wesmin’ IBMYP is for everyone, the great teachers at our school have an impressive way of incorporating the IBMYP into all sorts of activities and lessons. Our students, or Warriors, move on from Westmin’ into high schools prepared with a complete well-rounded junior high education and experience.

At Westmin’ you can excel in academics, athletics and the arts. In our inclusive community, you can excel at building skateboards in our Industrial Design program, at making music in our band and guitar programs or at creating the next great dish in our Culinary Arts program. You can push past your personal limits in Sports Performance while making the community and world a better place through our Leadership program. Through our many pathways to success, our Warriors find their excellence and are ready to challenge and change the world.
