School History and Demographics
Argyle School was opened in 1954 in the southwest area of the city. A quote from the Leader-Post at the
time stated, the “six-room, modernistic school was turned over to W. Peart, chairman of the public
school board ...” Since then, Argyle School has expanded to include a full complement of classrooms,
resource centre, gymnasium and teacher preparation areas. In addition, Argyle School has established several
community partnerships. The Gator Park Day Care provides services to our community and the Regina
community at large.
The community is attractive with well-maintained housing in the immediate area of the school. With
Regina Public School Board’s decision to merge the Argyle and Athabasca attendance areas in 2011, the
school has seen a considerable increase in student enrolment starting in 2011-2012—a trend which has
continued on a yearly basis. Currently, there are approximately 300 students enrolled at Argyle

School Governance Structure
Argyle Elementary School has a principal and currently no vice-principal or other formal leadership
positions, however, staff are very responsive to the needs of learners and the community and leadership
is shared by all. The students are represented by a Student Representative Council (Gator Gusto Group -
GGG) that is voluntary and highly involved in decision making around student initiatives. The Argyle
School Community Council is elected at its' annual AGM and is composed of voting
parents/community members, the principal, and five teachers. Many other families are involved in SCC
undertakings and there is great pride in the school and school community.
