Welcome

Londonderry Junior High School is known for its longstanding “Tradition of Excellence”. We expect excellent results from all students.  Our achievement results  from the 2013 - 2014 provincial achievement tests indicate our students continue to perform very well in all four core subject areas (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies).  You may refer to the Academic Achievement section under the About Our School - School Profile category to see our June 2014 results.  All staff members work together to create a school focused on student learning. Our teachers, who are passionate and knowledgeable about their subject areas, design instruction and assessments so that students are engaged in and responsible for their learning. Our teaching assistants provide small group assistance for struggling learners. To encourage students to be lifelong readers, our extensive library provides current high interest books. Our office staff assists students daily with inquiries, concerns, and maintaining school operations. For our school to be a source of pride and a hub of learning, our custodial staff maintains a clean environment.

Londonderry has also been commended for its excellence in student conduct and citizenship. All of our students are expected to treat themselves, others, and our school with respect and fairness. Periodically, we hold assemblies in our gym to create a cohesive school culture and community. We discuss important issues, mark significant events and celebrate student leadership which raises awareness and donations for many charitable organizations.  Each month a character trait is discussed, encouraged and celebrated.

Because Londonderry school offers a wide range of complementary courses and extracurricular clubs, our students are able to develop their talents and interests. The incredible work of students in our many Performing and Visual Arts courses can be regularly seen at district performance and exhibits.

Our Mandarin Bilingual program was one of the first in Alberta and has an uncontested reputation for its rigorous language development and successful alumni. Our Mandarin program is further enhanced with our partnership with a school in Shandong Province.  Both the Mandarin and French courses contribute to the diversity in our school and have helped create not only a tolerance for multiculturalism, but a celebration of it.

Our many sports team throughout the years have consistently achieved high standings in district leagues, playoffs and tournaments, as evident in our overflowing showcases of medals and trophies. The competitive spirit also drives our intramural program as every lunch hour our gym is teeming with students.

Londonderry school’s tradition of excellence is a source of pride and is a continuing inspiration for students and staff to reach their individual potential and to strengthen the school community.

Principal's Message

At Londonderry Junior High School we believe every child can be successful. Because of this belief, professional excellence is our standard. Complementing our very strong commitment to academic excellence, we also place a very high value on the importance of providing a caring, nurturing and supportive environment for learning. This environment also includes expectations which encourage personal responsibility as well as respect and tolerance for all individuals.
 
Londonderry is situated in the northeast part of Edmonton. It's northern boundary is 153 Avenue, it's southern boundary is 137 Avenue; it's western boundary is 82 Street and its eastern boundary is 66 Street. The immediate community consists of single and multi-family dwellings with a mixture of semi-skilled, skilled and professional workers. Less than half of our student population originates in the neighborhood; the other students travel here from outside our school boundaries from many of the elementary schools in the greater northeast area of Edmonton. Our students have a broad mix of ethnic, cultural, religious, linguistic and national influences shaping who we are as school community. These influences originate from many different regions of our world and help mould the character of our school in a manner that continually generates a very stimulating and rich learning and teaching environment.
 
We have 22 classes for 691 students. We are a district site for Pre-Advanced Placement, Opportunity and Mandarin Bilingual programs. We have an Academic Success Centre which is available for students requiring extra time to complete assessments or for those needing additional assistance. We provide an intramural program, numerous extra-curricular athletic and non-athletic programs. Students have access over 200 portable netbook computers/Chromebooks and 60 networked computer stations. Complementary courses offered to students include: Art, Band, Construction, Drama, Fashion Studies, Food Studies, Guitar, Leadership, Mandarin Language for Beginners, Outdoor Education and Visual Communications.
