People are connected to the buildings in this city – especially the schools. We have lived our lives in and around them, and many of them hold a special place in our personal stories. Thousands of students, parents, and teachers have passed through these buildings, and everyone’s experience has been unique.

This page features memories collected through various projects and kept safe in the collections of the Edmonton Public Schools Archives and the City of Edmonton Archives.
