    McKernan School is full in planned classes in:

    • Grade 2 in the French Immersion program
    • Grade 6 and 7 in the Regular program
    • Grade 8 in the Academic Enrichment program
    • Grade 9 in the Spanish Bilingual program

    For the Regular program, we will now only accept resident students in Grade 6 and 7 who 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 enroll in another Division school with space in planned classes.

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

McKernan: 2022 - 2023 Jr. High Option Interest Survey

It’s that time of the year to look at what the 2022 - 20223 school year’s Jr. High Option courses might look like.  To assist us in our planning of what next year looks like we need your input.  Please complete the following Google Form by Friday, June 17th.  



In the Google Form you will notice that we have listed 17 potential Option courses.  This does not mean that we will be able to offer all 17 Option courses at all grades.  As you complete the form you will notice that we are asking you to rank the Option courses based on your preference.  Everyone’s selection and preferences will aid us in organizing what our Junior High Options will look like based on the selections submitted.


We will be communicating with students with more Options information prior to the end of the year.  

Thank you!

Your Admin Team (Mr. Horton and Mr. Gaviria)

Principal's Message

Welcome to McKernan!  


It is my absolute pleasure to welcome you to McKernan School.  Whether you are a student, parent, staff member, community member or prospective Mustang, you are family! The best thing about family is that the richness comes from our differences; whether age - Kindergarten to grade 9, language - English, French and Spanish, or programming - Regular, Pre-Advanced Placement, Immersion, Late Immersion and Bilingual McKernan has something for every student.  

What brings us together is a focus on our Core Values.  At McKernan:

  • We Seek
  • We Learn
  • We Lead 

While simple, the complexities of the learning process are represented in these stages of learning.  McKernan staff support students as they seek to explore their curiosities, find new pathways to learning and ultimately demonstrate the leadership abilities that will serve them as they head off to high school and beyond.  


We look forward to supporting all current and future Mustangs!
