    School Philosophy

    David Thomas King said his hope is for us to create a school that celebrates inclusion and diversity, supports students academically and socially, and ensures they are fully connected to the community. 

    His vision, along with our District Cornerstone Values of Accountability, Collaboration, Equity, and Integrity, will guide our work as we create the culture of David Thomas King School. A three-way partnership between parents, students and staff will lead the way to create the qualities and attitudes that are critical in developing respectful and responsible citizens.

Welcome

David Thomas King School is located in the Secord neighbourhood in west Edmonton. Mr. King was a MLA from 1971 to 1986, and served as the Education Minister from 1979 - 1986. He was responsible for several major initiatives, including support for First Nations Education, establishing provincial diploma exams, developing the computer technology in schools program, and implementing the Designated Community Schools Program. He believes that schools should have a mandate to attend to more than the program of studies, every school should be a vibrant community that is inclusive, celebrates diversity and seeks global citizenship.
