Red Deer Public Schools are celebrating 125 Years of Excellence in Teaching and Learning
Started in a log school house with 21 students in 1887, Red Deer Public Schools has come a long way. Today we provide quality education to 10,000 students in 20 schools offering a wide range of programs and services to support students in achieving their personal best.
The 2012-2013 school year will mark our 125th Anniversary and we have much to celebrate. Anniversary events begin the weekend of September 20 to 22, 2012, with celebrations continuing throughout the year. We welcome you to participate in some of the planned events.
