Welcome

Londonderry Junior High School is known for its longstanding “Tradition of Excellence”. We expect excellent results from all students.  Our achievement results on the provincial achievement tests indicate our students continue to perform very well in all four core subject areas (Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies).   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.

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

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our Londonderry students, parents and community members. My name is Ed Charpentier and I am the Principal of this amazing school.  It is amazing how things work out in our lives.  I was a student of Londonderry Junior High, as well as a teacher for a couple of years.  I grew up right across the field from Londonderry and have many fond memories from my childhood in relation to this neighborhood and school.

At Londonderry we pride ourselves in our commitment to academic excellence and place a very high value on the importance of providing a caring and supportive environment for learning.  We believe that all children can reach their potential with guidance and hard work and know it does not matter where they start but where they finish.  We also understand that they will make mistakes throughout their lives and we will support them as they navigate their learning and growth at our school.

We have over 700 wonderful, full of life students here at our school.  Londonderry is a district site for Pre-Advanced Placement, Opportunity and the Mandarin Bilingual Program.  We also have an Academic Success Centre which is available for students requiring extra time to complete assessments or for those needing additional assistance.  We have a wide range of electronics for student use to enhance their learning as well as many activities before, during and after school.

 

It is great to be back! 

If you have any questions about Londonderry school, please do not hesitate to contact me at the school.
