    Registration Information


    For the 2023 - 2024 school year, Spruce Avenue School is full in all planned classes in the regular program. We will now only accept resident students who have newly moved into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. 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.

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.


    You will need to pre-enroll on SchoolZone to tell us the school you’d like your child to attend next year. Find important dates and deadlines and learn more about pre-enrolment, which opens between March and April each year.

    If you have questions about registering for school, contact the school office.

Welcome to Spruce Avenue School! Home of the Spartans.

At Spruce Avenue, we are proud to offer a variety of programs that support different types of learners. We are a community school that serves students in grades 7-9 and we are very fortunate to have an excellent partnership with The Family Centre and BGCBigs (Boys and Girls Club/Big Brothers Big Sisters) who support and provide us with our All in for Youth team. As a collective, we work to provide quality learning and mental health support for students and their families. Spruce Avenue School reflects the rich cultural heritage of the students that make up its diverse population and who focus on kindness and community. We look forward to welcoming you and your family into our Spartan Community!

Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

At Spruce Avenue Jr High, we are listening, we are learning, and we are committed to the success of every student we serve.

Everyday, we aspire to be a learning community where every individual belongs, is included and experiences success. We strive to empower our students to reach their goals in a diverse, equitable and inclusive space that values their lived experiences. We work collaboratively with our partners to support the wellness and mental health of our students so that they may experience success in academics and in their lives. 

Parents and guardians are key partners in learning; together, we are stronger. We welcome family input and involvement and are grateful for the partnerships that make Spruce Avenue a better place. 

On behalf of the staff, I welcome you to Spruce Avenue School for a year of learning and growing together. I am truly honoured to be the principal in a school where our shared belief that all students have the potential to learn is lived. Please do not hesitate to call me at the school (780) 479-0155 or email me at kris.simpson@epsb.ca with any questions or to provide input to support student success.

Working with you,

Kris Simpson
