School Code of Conduct and Handbook

Legal Public School opened the fall of 2022 with 3 classrooms - a Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten split, a grade 1/2 split and a 3/4 split.

We offer exceptional programming for students, focussing on creating confident learners. Ensuring the comfortability and happiness of our students, feeling a sense of safety and belonging in our building is the main priority for our staff and school. We foster student’s growth in attitudes and behaviors around learning, friendship, acceptance, and positivity.

This stems from teachers being committed to meeting students where they are at and facilitating learning that is engaging and meaningful.  We engage students as a community of learners, extending learning activities across grade levels to foster leadership and growth.  

The school is located at 5109 46 St. in Legal, Alberta. Ms. Kessia Brenneis is currently the Principal of Bon Accord Community School (BACS) and serves as Principal of both schools. Mrs. Erika McKinstry serves as the Vice Principal. 

Opening a Public School within Legal is a wonderful opportunity for families in and around the town to access Public Education within their own community. It ensures local connections and community spirit while reducing transportation times for those just outside the town but within Sturgeon County.
