City Hall School is an Inquiring Minds Site. It provides a week long, inquiry based, hands on learning experience for Grade 1 to 12.

Week Long Learning

They will learn that this landmark building is not just the home of civic leadership but also a gathering place for the community. The vibrant downtown core provides endless possibilities for connecting students to their city, curriculum and career pathways.

As the week progresses students, teachers and parent volunteers come away with an increased sense of civic pride and a richer understanding of the services that the City provides to meet the needs of Edmontonians.

Year Long Learning

The week is a catalyst for a year-long connection with City Hall. Students receive their City Hall School journals and Key to the City in September and start making connections through the theme the teacher has developed for the class.

Citizenship Fair

The annual Citizenship Fair in June allows students to showcase and celebrate their year.

The Coordinator works with the teacher to provide training and plan activities tailored for the class.

2020/2021 Schools

23 teachers and their classes were selected for the 2020/21 school year. City Hall School programming will be provided virtually for the 2020/21 school year, pending Covid-19 restrictions.
