Helen E. Taylor School


Helen E. Taylor School is a grade 5-9 school located in Wembley Alberta. The attendance area for the school includes the town of Wembley and the surrounding rural area. We serve a student population of approximately 140 students. 

Helen E. Taylor School runs a compressed school week resulting in an organization base of nine school days per two week block rather than five school days per one week block. 

Implementation of the Compressed School Week occurred for bussing reasons. High school students, who attend the Beaverlodge Regional High School, need to arrive at that school by 9:00. Consequently, Helen E. Taylor students in Grades 5-9 are delivered to the school by 8:25 in the morning. 

Our Academic Program includes both core and complementary courses with a Health and Fitness Focus!
