Welcome to Menisa Elementary School. In Cree Menisa means “many berries”. The name was given to the school because of the many wild berries, raspberries, saskatoons and blueberries found in the area. The construction of Menisa School was completed in September of 1981. Menisa Elementary School serves Kindergarten through Grade 6 children who reside in the area of Edmonton west to 80th Street, north to Mill Woods Road South, east to 66th Street and south to 10th Avenue. Also children who reside in the Orchards and Summerside South neighborhoods. At Menisa School, we are committed to providing a supportive learning environment; one that fosters optimal growth for all learners, to prepare them to meet the challenges of the present and the future. We believe that a positive learning environment is one in which students are encouraged to take risks and one in which mistakes are not viewed as failures but are accepted as an important part of the learning process. We have a strong focus on literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking. Learning activities are engaging and challenging experiences that invite success for all learners.
