Our School


Founded in 1978, the settlement's elementary school has an excellent staff, allowing our youth to obtain a great learning experience. The teachers of Elizabeth Settlement generate an open atmosphere for the children to feel free and comfortable while at the school.

The school operates under the Northland School Division # 61 in Peace River, Alberta. The building has nine classrooms from ECS to grade eight and can accomodate 115 students. The school employs nine teachers, one special aid assistant, one part-time secretary and one principal. A Cree language program has been ongoing since the 1980s to preserve the youth's connection to their native language. Since the late 90s, the school has built-in several new class-rooms, as well as a new kitchen; allowing students to enjoy a hot lunch without ever leaving the school. Our principal and teachers strive to make our children’s learning experience rewarding and would like to see all the youth succeed.

After completing grade eight, students may go on to the Assumption Jr/Sr High School or the high school located in the Cold Lake Energy Center. Post secondary education is available locally at the Portage College (also in the Energy Center) or its counterpart in the Bonnyville Centennial Center.

For the Kids

Elizabeth Settlement has a lot of places for kids to play and get some exercise. There are 6 playgrounds in the hamlet area as well as 3 baseball fields (2 adjacent), 2 soccer fields, as well as a large basketball court. Visitors may also wish to check out Soars Lake, located about 10km south of the Administration Office and accessible from the south-side (Poplar Side) or the north-side (Bible Camp).
