Our School

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

Elementary School.

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.
