Grande Prairie, Alberta
Grande Prairie Public School District No. 2357
Named after long-serving Grande Prairie Public School District superintendent and three-term Grande Prairie City Councillor, Derek Taylor Public School is a 400-student pre-kindergarten to Grade 8 school in the southwest Grande Prairie neighbourhood of Mission Heights.
Designed as a two-storey walk-out, this 5,065 m2 facility has separate entrances and wings for its three grade divisions with shared central amenities for all students, including the gymnasium, library, food server and administration suite. A key goal for the school district was to build a school with sufficient flexibility of space to allow a multitude of functions to occur while accommodating future growth and program changes.
